Swan 53


Jean d'Arthuys

Triana is led by French media entrepreneur Jean d’Arthuys, who has had a busy career from television to vineyards. Jean is no stranger to sailing and has crewed with Olivier de Kersauson of Whitbread fame.

Jean feels that the Ocean Globe Race is the right opportunity to revive his dream to race around the world and is bringing an experienced and adventurous crew. Triana brings a strong French media focus to the adventure!

It’s hard to explain the call of the sea, it takes hold of you with a mixture of fear and irrepressible attraction. It’s also an old dream from my youth. I had already set up a project 30 years ago, but it didn’t work out due to a lack of sponsors. Don’s idea of returning to the original format, mixing ocean racing and human adventure, makes the race accessible again and creates a strong interest in this next edition. This format slows down time and the madness of technology, creates the framework for an extraordinary human adventure, in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, the ocean.
