Get on board with Benjamin Ferré and Monnoyeur
"I am extremely proud to announce Monnoyeur's partnership with Benjamin Ferré," said Philippe Monnoyeur, CEO of Monnoyeur.
“The group, its subsidiaries and all its employees will discover a sailor whose story resonates with ours. We are all rooting for high success in this shared adventure.”
It began with a meeting between Philippe Monnoyeur, CEO of the group and 31-year-old sailor Benjamin Ferré, foal of the legendary Jean Le Cam.
The pair found common values: sharing, ambition and humanity. For more than a century, the Monnoyeur’s teams have handed down their expertise to younger generations, helping them respond to customers’ ever-evolving challenges.
This is why Monnoyeur decided to support Ferré in a four-year sponsorship programme. A major objective is to support him in the 2024 Vendée Globe, beginning with the Vendée Arctique in June, the Route du Rhum in November, and the subsequent qualifying races. He will sail with the group’s new identity proudly displayed on the hull and sails, accompanied by the DUO for a JOB association, which connects young people from diverse backgrounds and refugees actively seeking employment with mentors.
Benjamin Ferré: the skipper
Benjamin Ferré, 31, immerses you into an impressive universe: ocean racing. To say the least, this is not his first challenge: 40,000 kms hitchhiking around the globe, an Atlantic crossing on a sailboat using a sextant (without GPS) and the stars as a guide, a crossing of Morocco in a 4L and a single-handed offshore race in the 2019 Mini Transat.
Benjamin Ferré is a sailor and entrepreneur from Brittany, in love with life… and with crazy challenges!
On the programme for the next four years is a succession of legendary races such as the Transat Jacques Vabre and the Route du Rhum before reaching the ultimate dream, the XXL ocean race, for its 10th edition in 2024: the Vendée Globe.
