Who we are
Passionate since a young age, Guillaume started sailing on the family boat at the age of 10. Being based in Brittany, on the coast of the Bay of Biscay, France, gave him the perfect opportunity to sail to neighbouring islands whenever he had the time. During the school holidays it was even possible to venture a little further afield and make adventurous trips to the Channel Islands, in the North, or to the North coast of mainland Spain, to the South.
After his business studies, his first jobs brought him to work for shipyards and yacht charter companies. As soon as a yacht was available, Guillaume was leading his boat’s bow along the Cote d’Azur or towards Corsica, Sardinia and Turkey.
Back in Brittany, he bought his first sailboat and then a second. The third one was prepared for a year long circumnavigation around the Atlantic with his family. This was how he discovered the Caribbean and more particularly Antigua which he fell in love with. Now he is surrounded by the beauty of this island paradise and totally immersed in the world of sailing!
Until recently a professional in the hospitality business (he owned a world-famous restaurant in English Harbour for more than 10 years), Guillaume knows how to treat his clients and make sure they receive excellent service and outstanding quality.
Eolia Sailing Yacht Charter is born from his passion for being at sea sailing and it is this passion that he would love to share with you.
Guillaume has a RYA Boat Master Licence and a current STCW10 certificate.
