Stéphane Dyen

Design Team/sailor

An engineering graduate from Ecole Polytechnique (Paris) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), Stéphane Dyen is also a top-level racer. He has won two French sailing championships and podium places in European and world sailing championships. He is also a French bike trials champion. A veteran of the Tour de France à la voile, he also made a name for himself on the Surprise and has solid experience of sailing dinghies. He has been a member of Hydros since 2006.

"Through Hydros, I can apply cutting edge technology to new problems, in particular environmental challenges. It is also an opportunity to build a connection between sport and high technology. I was actually in training for the Olympics, but I stopped this to devote myself to my studies. This project lets me combine these two activities at a very high level."
