French solo and trimaran sailor Pascal Bidegorry has joined Team SEB for leg 4 of the Volvo Ocean Race which starts this Sunday (27 January) in Auckland.
Thirty-four year old Bidegorry has been a professional sailor since 1993, specialising in solo and trimaran sailing. During 2000 he won the The Figaro race and during 2001, he was on the winner’s stand several times sailing on the French trimaran Groupama where he met Team SEB’s navigator Marcel van Triest. On Groupama he won the French Grand Prix du Cap d’Agde and also the ORMA 60 foot multihull championship.
“Pascal with his extensive ocean racing knowledge and experience is the person we have been looking for. He fits in well as helmsman in our team,” says skipper Gurra Krantz.
