Born in Morges, on the shores of Lake Leman, Denis Girardet has been sailing since childhood on an old wooden family boat. Passionate about sailing, he realized during his studies in geology at the University of Lausanne that he prefers water to stones. Denis then joined the Geneva Regatta Training Centre (CER) and took part in several Tours de France à la Voile. Member of Realteam Sailing since its foundation, Denis runs a centre for crafts, culture and leisure when he is on land.
