Denis Van Weynbergh is a 54 year old Belgian sailor who has been passionate about sailing since he was a child, sailing every summer with his family all over Europe. The revelation of the open sea and racing came to him in 2001 during his participation in the Mini Transat. His philosophy is going to the end of things, after having participated in all the major ocean races. The goal is to go and find the Grail while discovering himself and to let others discover him: A "Vendée Globe" is a personal journey, but also a journey for all those who accompany the skipper. It's a philosophical and initiatory journey for all, on land as well as on the water. For him it is a real desire to surpass oneself and to build a project with a team and partners.
