Born into a Parisian family, nothing destined Clarisse Crémer to the offshore racing. However, after being a summer hobby when she was a young student, sailing became a real passion for Clarisse who has been accumulating miles thanks to the support of her partners.
In 2015, while founding a start-up and living in Paris, Clarisse decided to change her life and to go to Brittany in order to fulfill her wish to become a sailor. She shares her Mini 6.50 project on her social networks with humour but Clarisse also works a lot to progress and it’s paying off. For her first participation, she finished 2nd in the Transat 6.50 2017 in the series boat category.
Today, Clarisse Crémer is a part of Team Banque Populaire, which allows her to join the IMOCA class to compete in the Vendée Globe 2020. A huge challenge for the young woman who will have this year an excellent teacher with Armel Le Cléac'h, also skipper of the Banque Populaire Team and winner of the last Vendée Globe.
Together, they compete for the Transat Jacques Vabre aboard the Banque Populaire X (the ex-SMA on which Paul Meilhat won the last Route du Rhum).
