François Morvan is considered to be one of France’s leading specialists in multihull sailing and his vast experience will make him an integral member of the France SailGP Team heading into Season 2. A competitive sailor from young age, he honed his skills during an Olympic campaign and won titles in the Hobie Cat 16 and F18 before shifting his attention to offshore multihull racing.

Morvan joined Spindrift racing in 2013 and was a key member of the team, racing across a variety of multihulls, including D35, Diam24, M32, Spindrift 2, and went on to win the Tour de France Voile 2015.

Morvan was part of the France performance team in SailGP Season 1 and his analytical expertise, coupled with his helming abilities, makes him the ideal candidate for the demanding and subtle position of flight controller for Season 2. In addition to his multihull skills, Morvan will bring his competitiveness and attention to detail to the French team.
