A year of success with Franck Cammas

In 2013, for the second year running, Franck Cammas has been named "Sailor of the Year". After its victory in the 2012 Volvo Ocean Race, the Groupama sailing team continued its pursuit of excellence.

Triple champion of French Match Racing, ocean racing and Olympic sailing, winner of the Tour de France à la Voile by an unprecedented margin (22 victories in 37 courses), winner of the French Olympic Week and winner of the World C Class championship, Franck Cammas has enjoyed exceptional success over 320 days of sailing, achieving regular victories over the last sixteen years. With the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio in their sights, the priority for Franck Cammas and Sophie de Turckheim is to prepare for the games in the Nacra 17 event, a mixed catamaran event which is only one part of a very busy programme in 2014!

"With Groupama, we are moving forward in a quite exceptional environment of mutual trust that we have maintained now for sixteen years. Without it, and without this shared ambition, we would never have had the resources we needed to be innovative and drive our performance. I've said it before and I'll say it again: races are won before the starting gun is fired."
