Caen (14), France

Jeff has joined the team on March 1st 2017 but he knew Jolokia very well already as he worked from 2013 to 2015 as the boat technical manager. He’s always been immersed in the maritime environment: he started as a sailing instructor for French school “Les Glénans” and then did a lot of boat charters as a professional skipper from 2005. It is quite natural, therefore, that he decided to join the team at the end of 2016 when the opportunity arose.
