A sail designer for North Sails and a talented sailor, Jacques Guichard is a large multihull expert and a skilled sail trimmer. Winner of the Krys Ocean Race and the 2012 Multi One Championship on board the MOD70 Spindrift racing alongside his brother, Jacques always has his eyes on the sails and is looking to convert the slightest breath of wind into forward motion. In addition to his experience on ORMA and other sports multihulls, his perfectionism combined with a great character and sense of humour makes him a valuable team member. From 2002 to 2012, the biggest names in racing have benefitted from his keen sail makers eye and exceptional craftsmanship, which now helps to serve Sails of Change.
