Autopilot expert

Hugo Kerhascoët

Recognized expert in the automatic steering of racing boats, Hugo practice competition since a very young age. Embedded systems engineer and PhD in signal processing, he is a former high profile sailor who divides his time between the design of the systems at the office and their implementation onboard. These have proven themselves during the biggest ocean races.

The strength of his profile is his dual scientific and sporting skills, which allows him to understand the behavior and subtleties necessary to control racing boats, then retranscribe them in the form of numerical algorithms, which steer the boat in order to maximize his performance.
