Winner of the first 3 races of the season alone, the 25-year-old sailor will be the scarecrow of this 53rd edition which starts on Sunday.

He had made a remarkable appearance on his first leg of the Solitaire du

Since then, Tom Laperche (Région Bretagne CMB Performance), like a comet, continues to sparkle.

at the invitation of Thomas Coville, a friend of his father.
