At 34 years old, Louis Burton confirmed his talent by finishing the last Vendée Globe in 7th place on one of the oldest IMOCA. A performance that rewarded this Parisian entrepreneur, who moved to Saint-Malo out of love for his wife Servane Escoffier who is also a sailor.
Since 2010 and his first Route du Rhum in the Class40 category, where he was the youngest, Louis Burton has completed a solo world tour and done several offshore races. For his 2017-2021 program, Louis Burton will be at the helm of the IMOCA which won the last Vendée Globe. It is named Bureau Vallée 2, after its loyal sponsor since 2010 and its first Route du Rhum. 10 years of exemplary collaboration.
After his participation in the last Route du Rhum and his arrival in 4th place at the Rolex Fastnet Race, he is now preparing to take the start of the Transat Jacques Vabre this October. His co-skipper will be Davy Beaudart, an experienced sailor and friend. Now with an optimized Bureau Vallée 2, Louis Burton is determined to play a leading role in the Défi Azimut, a race he has never missed.
