He is now perfectly at home in the charter world on board large sailing yachts.
He also monitored the building of a 75’ sail boat, ‘Kermor’ and stepped on board as Captain for a round the world cruise which took him to all the seas and oceans of the world between 1993 and 2002.
Since then, he has sailed on various boats, such as the Swan 72’ Elysion Blue, the 130’ Globana M, the motor yacht Pegasus, the 82’ Falcon, and Sirius of Man, a Predateur 100, before embarking on Grand Bleu Vintage in February 2007.
In addition to his excellent seamanship and technical skills, Pascal loves water skiing and downhill skiing, he plays golf and enjoys natural history, astronomy and photography.

Hostess: Clémence LASSNING, 33 years old
Languages spoken: French - English fluent
It was perhaps her childhood on an African peninsula that gave Clémence her love of the sea at a young age; she grew up sailing in the Gulf of Guinea, and later she served as hostess and sailor on the seas of the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and the Atlantic Ocean.
As comfortable on sailboats as luxury motor yachts, her professionalism and good humor will make your stay aboard the Grand Bleu Vintage relaxed and pleasurable.
