Basile Bourgnon – the youngest competitor

From the height of  (very high : 1m95) his 18 years, Basile is the youngest competitor in the  Marie-Agnès Péron Trophy this year. He arrived in the  Mini Class to learn about these small boats which are both technical and fast. And he chose the Series category : « In this category it’s the  skipper who makes the difference ». His boat is a  scow, Raison design, the maxi 975 – Aelig – Edenred.

Basile is far from being a novice and has already completed the Transatlantique Jacques Vabre in doubles with Emmanuel Le Roch on Class40 in 2019. This year  Mini solo, he’s done part of  Sables-Les Acores to Morlaix Bay before retiring with an injury and the  Mini in May where he finished 13th. He also raced the Duo Concarneau again with Emmanuel Le Roch, and they arrived in  8th position.

If we go back to 2018, you might have noticed him on the pontoons in  Tréboul during the Grand Prix Guyader when he raced on Diam24.

But for the time being he’s concentrating on the  Marie-Agnès Péron Trophy and he really  doesn’t want to get cold during the race. Next the boat will return to the boatyard to be improved and made more reliable. The main focus for  Basile is 2021 and the Mini-Transat.
