Year of Birth: 1961

JC has been sailing since a young age and became already a captain on sailboats when he was 18 years old.

When his boys were small he managed a hotel of 200 beds with a big hotel team under his supervision. He likes organising exclusive holidays for guests, welcoming them and looking aTer them during their stay.

Being captain on DOUCE FRANCE is for him the perfect combination of his hotel management experience together with his navigation skills and this in the most beautiful locations in the world! Jean-Christophe will be delighted to share these exceptional moments on DOUCE FRANCE with you.
