THE CO-FOUNDERS

When they met in 2016, Mayeul, Xavier & Benoît set themselves a crazy challenge: to build the fastest sailing boat in the world.

Today, this dream has come true with SP80, an adventure that brings together fifty people around the same goal: to reach 80 knots (150 km/h) solely powered by wind.
