When he is not racing in some fantastic machine, he sets off to sail round the world...on a sports cat! After this feat, Yvan became aware of a serious problem: the pollution of the seas. As a result, he decided to launch into a new project: creating a revolutionary boat to clean the oceans of plastic waste. The idea is to be able to get to the place where the waste is situated quickly, and literally rake and collect it before it deteriorates and sinks to the bottom of the ocean. To do this, Yvan and his team have thought up a ‘quadrimaran’, 72 metres wide in its working configuration, and able to collect waste to a depth of 1.5 meters.
