Jeff Come in Vendée

Come in Vendée

an adventure to unite businesses from the Vendée area

APRIL Marine is delighted to support Jean-François Pellet, skipper of the Come in Vendée boat, which will be setting off on the 2016 Vendée Globe race.

Local craftsmen, shop keepers and businesses from Vendée, just like APRIL Marine, have all come together to get involved in the Vendée Globe. We are now a group of over 300 partners supporting Jeff.

Born and bred in Les Sables d'Olonne, is Jean-François Pellet really an adventurer, a sailor, or an offshore racer? All three, captain! Aged 45, this sea lover has already sailed around twenty transatlantic races and made many delivery trips. In all, the equivalent of four round the world voyages on anything that floats with one or more hulls!

What Jeff has set his sights on now is completing the non-stop round the world voyage, taking with him the dreams of all his partners.
