Born in 1967, François Robert began his competitive career aboard Figaro and took part in
two editions of the Mini Transat (1991 and 1995), before being appointed Bruno Peyron’s navigator aboard Commodore Explorer. His love of “la course au large” also saw him flanking Antoine Koch at the start-line for the 2003 Transat Jacques Vabre.
In 1997, he was on the build team for Giovanni Soldini’s 60’ Fila and then, in 2007, worked on the build of the Class 40 Telecom Italia.
