Shirley and the team meet France’s most versatile sailor Franck Cammas, for more than a decade this charismatic Frenchman has conquered some of the sport’s biggest challenges from the Jules Verne Trophy to the Volvo Ocean Race whilst setting countless records along the way.
Franck will now take two very different challenges simultaneously, one to try and qualify for the Olympic Games in Rio, the second to lead France to victory in the America’s Cup. Two challenges with two packed schedules, some would doubt that you could do both well enough to be successful in either but for the man who appears to have the midas touch and live life to the maximum, anything is possible.
