'French sailor and skipper of Groupama 4 Franck Cammas - now with Luna Rossa'    Yvan Zedda ©

Italian America's Cup Challenger, Team Luna Rossa Challenge 2013, has announced that it has finalized a technical and sports agreement with French sailor Franck Cammas, winning skipper of the 2012 Round the World Race and one of the world's top multihulls experts. Cammas will join the team in the role of coach.

Franck Cammas, born in 1972, is French from Aix in Provence. His career as a professional sailor started at the conclusion of his math studies.

At the age of 24 Cammas won the Solitaire du Figaro; one year later he took the helm of Team Groupama’s first trimaran. He was winner of six world championships in the ORMA class (trimaran 60 feet) in 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007 and also won the World Championship Fico-Lacoste (Forum International de la Course Oceanique) in 2000 and 2004.

Cammas’ sports career also counts numerous records in multihull, among which the victory of the Trophée Jules Verne in 2010 (round the world record in 48 days, 7 hours, 44 minutes and 52 seconds) and the Transat Jacques Vabre, the crossing of the Atlantic ocean from Le Havre, France to San Salvador de Bahia, Brasil, that he won in 2001, 2003 and 2007.

In 2010 he won the Route du Rhum (single handed transatlantic) on board of the 31,50 meter trimaran Groupama 3. In 2012, at his debut in this event, he won the Volvo Ocean Race with the VOR 70 Groupama 4.
