Sailing

Sailing is discovering another universe, is learning to play with the elements to move, apprehending time and distances differently, disconnecting from your usual way of life and learning to live with others. It is a promise of vibrations, palpitations, acceptations. But above all, exploration. Whether human, geographic, intellectual, scientific or even artistic, it takes part in the time of reflection , very often cruelly put aside today. Being faced with an ocean as far as the eye can see while living in close proximity with a crew leaves no one indifferent. Experience, share and explore . This is what we would like to share with you on board Estrella

THE TEAM OF THE STAR

Olivia

The rolling armourer

Travel and me, it's a long love story that experienced an unexpected break when I had an accident between two destinations. It will have taken a little time for us to re-tame him and me, but our story has picked up again and has never had as much force and meaning as today ...

 

If my accident forced me to live a completely different adventure for a few years, namely the discovery of the world of disability, as hard as it was rich to grasp, I was able, thanks to my entourage, to a formidable medical team, and by dint of will, start dreaming again and believe that everything is possible.

 

From this chaotic at first sight journey, was born the desire to show that his own will carried by beautiful meetings, can make us exceed all limits.

It's been 10 years now that it's on my four wheels that I ride around the world.

 

 

This is why I founded We Wheel Rock You, an association that promotes adventure, solidarity, surpassing oneself and discovery.

 

It is in the continuity of the work accomplished for over three years that I decided to embark on this new challenge, the realization of a childhood dream and the values ​​that I wish to defend.

 

After three inclusive adventure projects, each time involving more successful actors for WWRY, I wanted to take it to the next level and get more involved.

So when Christophe Souchaud told me about Estrella, it was obvious: that's what I would like to do!

 

Estrella, this magnificent 60-foot sailboat, is the ideal tool to carry high, strong and far the colors of inclusion, solidarity, discovery and surpassing oneself that I have been defending for three years with the association We Wheel Rock You.

 

Allow people with disabilities to fully enjoy the experience of navigation, participate in offshore races with disabled crews to show that difference can be a performance lever, offer original themed cruises and raise awareness about the environment, while creating meetings and social ties, this is the vocation of this project.

L'association Hissons l'Étoile a rejoint les rangs d'Estrella Lab pour porter ce projet aussi ambitieux que solidaire. Sa vocation est de favoriser l’accès de la pratique de la voile hauturière et de toutes activités sportives et culturelles au bénéfice du plus grand nombres et plus spécifiquement aux personnes en situation de handicap. Porter des messages d’espoir, de solidarité et d’inclusion par le biais de navigations sur le bateau Estrella. Son noyau dur  est composé d'une équipe de choc aussi diverse que complémentaire avec pour point commun une véritable volonté de défendre l'inclusion sous toutes ces formes.

Captaine with a big heart

After ten years of solo convoying and with a limited crew in the Atlantic, Christophe Souchaud participated in his first transatlantic race in 1995, as quartermaster on Étoile Maxi with Bob Escoffier.

Since then, he has never stopped racing and criss-crossing the water, closing, among other things, two Québec-Saint-Malo and two Routes du Rhum. On his behalf but not only.

“Beyond the sporting challenge, I wanted to lead another adventure, more united, by involving people with disabilities. "

A true enthusiast, his vocation is to share his love of the oceans with a public with disabilities.
