DENIS HOREAU

Race director

Sailor, offshore race organizer and Race Manager, Denis has devoted his professional life to fast sailing yachts, their development and to following sailors who set off to circumnavigate the world.

It was a natural step to join the Hydros team, which develops the fastest and most sophisticated yachts, the only ones capable of flying at 3 times wind speed, and opening the way to the boats of the future.

Denis quickly realized that investing in the HYDROS Foundation and its events - the HYDROcontest, LITTLECUP or the HYDROFOIL exhibition – From Crazy Pioneers to High Efficiency – to develop, support and promote better energy efficiency in the future was self-evident and rewarding avenue. The foundation receives his support every day and this fosters the finest ideas.
