A structural analysis and materials engineer, Antoine Carraz is above all a lover of sailing. After growing up on the shores of Lake Annecy, he moved to Brittany and worked on IMOCA 60s, before driving D35 and MOD70 projects with Mer Agitée, a team renowned for preparing for major events such as the Route du Rhum, the Vendée Globe and the Transat Jacques Vabre. A high-level technician, a sailor and always willing to share his passion, Carraz joined Spindrift racing and is now immersed in the adventure of the maxi Spindrift 2 from all angles; human, logistical, technical and budgetary, with more enthusiasm than ever.
