Diam 24

Three Frenchies in San Francisco

What could three Frenchmen, who were once well known on the seas of Brittany 20 years ago and who are now settled in the United States, be doing? Well, they’re still sailing, of course! And what’s more, they’re taking up multihull sailing! 

Who: Fred, Erwan & Jacques
Where: San Francisco, USA
Multihull: Diam 24
“We’ve been based in San Francisco for more than 10 years now, for professional reasons as well as nautical ones. Logically I would have settled more in the Seattle area, but I chose SF for the sailing.... There have been quite a few different experiences. First on a hull with an Open 5.70 with which we won the North America championship, then a ‘small’ Pacific Cup (San Francisco - Hawaii) last summer, double-handed with Erwan. We finished 3rd before setting off again 3 days later for the return trip from Hawaii to San Francisco... Now the three of us are on three hulls with a Diam 24. We picked up an old Team France sail at the end of a Tour Voile. The bay is a paradise for sailing...often at sustained speed!”
