  • At the helm of his 15.65 metre yacht, Jean Gillet will take you wherever you want to go, fast or slow. It's custom cruising to suit you, in racing mode or taking it easy, to let you hone your sailing skills or just for the love of being out on the sea.

    A skipper to take you sailing for half a day, a weekend, a week or even longer, with your family or friends, on a cruise that follows a route chosen by you… That's what Jean Gillet is offering, setting off from Lorient, from March to November, on 'Intrepid', his 15.65 metre yacht. Your cruise is designed to suit you, and you can lounge on deck or take the helm beside the skipper, follow the coast and stop off for extended onshore visits or head for Ireland or Ouessant (Ushant) at full speed. "It's a very multipurpose boat," Jean explains. "It has the potential of a racing yacht but at the same time it provides excellent living quarters. My mission is to share the experience and my love of sailing with people, whether they're hardened sailors or not." Also, Jean has signed a charter committing him to sustainable development, which involves minimising pollution and stocking up only with local produce.
