Sébastien Rogues, the Team ENGIE skipper
The ENGIE Group has supported the career of skipper Sébastien Rogues from his early days in 2009 through the Mini Transat 6.50 class to the Class40 monohull (2012-2014). Since 2015, Sébastien will be flying the flag for ENGIE onboard the GC32 foiling catamaran. New season 2017, new challenges!
After last year's Round France Race with the Diam 24 trimaran, Team ENGIE skipper Sébastien Rogues is embarking on the 2016 season onboard the ENGIE GC32 foiling catamaran for the 2016 Bullitt GC32 Racing Tour. Over the last three seasons, this series of races for high-tech, ultra-performance catamarans has attracted increasing numbers of world-class sailors.
The Team ENGIE skipper has reached out to some highly motivated young crew members to compete alongside him. Sébastien Rogues will helm the season, with Jean-Baptiste Gellée as mainsail traveler trimmer, Gurvan Bontemps as mainsail trimmer and tactician, Antoine Joubert as headsail trimmer, and from last year's crew, Christophe Carbonnières as bowman. It's a team with the experience needed to consolidate the progress made by the ENGIE crew throughout the year.
“The end of the 2016 season was very encouraging for us, and in 2017 Team ENGIE will be continuing to do what we have already begun. The Team will be unchanged, but we l have a more ambitious goal of finishing the 2017 season on the podium, with wins in a number of events. We are capable of achieving these results, because our team is made up of top professionals and our team spirit is our driving force. Our season will get underway with the GC32 World Championship and the first stage of the Extreme Sailing Series in Oman. We are delighted to be taking part. It will be a wonderful experience and an opportunity to compete with elite sailors in the discipline,” said Sébastien Rogues.
