  • Armel Le Cleac’h

    The Yacht Racing Forum is a very important event for us, because we need to show what we are doing. We want to open up to the rest of the world with the Ultime class, and welcome new international teams. The Forum is the ideal platform to reach this very international audience.


  • Jean-Pierre Dick, pro sailor and project manager

    It is very exciting to experience this event that combines sport and technology; to discover the new projects presented by the main players in our sport. It allows participants to meet the sports’ key actors from all over the world, and to create new contacts in the world of yacht racing.

  • Merfyn Owen, naval architect

    It’s a really great event to meet your peers who work in your industry, keep relationships going and developing business opportunities.

  • Adrienne Cahalan, maritime lawyer and former pro sailor

    Fantastic event in a great location, excellent for networking.

  • Bill Pearson, Technical Director, North Sails

    It is very rare that people from different sides of the industry meet, because our environment is super competitive, if not secretive. This conference is also unique because it is the only one that reassembles both sides of the sport: the design & technology and the business and marketing, and it’s really good to get a broad overview of what is going on.

  • Alain Gautier, Vendée Globe 1992-93 winner

    In France, we have a tendency to remain within French people… The Forum is a great opportunity for us to reach out to an international audience.
