Welcome on board !

I’m Guirec, a french guy sailing around the world with Monique … a little red chicken.
No, this is not a joke and I’m not a crazy either (perhaps I am, depends on who you ask). Anyway, she's my best friend ever. Sine we met in 2014, we’ve been filming and writing our adventures on Facebook.
Together, we’ve crossed the Atlantic ocean, with an old rusty boat, with no prior sailing expérience or means of communication and no money… well, with no more than 60 cents in my pocket to be exact!
We then sailed up to Greenland, and got stuck in the ice for 130 days, in total isolation with only rice and corn to survive.  
Following this, we crossed the famous Northwest Passage in 32 days and 30 eggs. By the way, I’m proud to say that I’m the youngest sailor, and Monique the only chicken in the world to have accomplished such an adventure.
During this quest, we nearly lost our boat Yvinec several times during huge storms, we suffered equipment failures, went to jail and got impounded in the middle of nowhere. But the sailing life is so amazing, and now i’m glad to call the Ocean ‘’home’’.

Our next big adventure ? Reaching Antarctica!
We already left San Francisco Harbor and will be deux months at sea (with no stop), crossing the entire Pacific ocean from top to bottom, a journey of more than 7,000 miles. 

Through our adventures, we really want to encourage people to protect their world, especially the ocean. You can check out our different actions on our website : www.guirecsoudee.com

We are so grateful for any help you can give, to make this epic voyage possible. And, of course, to make Monique the most adventurous hen in the world.  We couldn't continue without your support ! 

Very truly yours, 

Guirec & Monique 



Bienvenue à bord !

Je m’appelle Guirec, je navigue sur les mers en solitaire, à bord de mon voilier que j’ai baptisé Yvinec. Je ne suis pas si seul que ça, puisque Monique une poule rousse m’accompagne partout.

Non, ce n'est pas une blague. Ensemble, nous avons décidé de parcourir le monde du Pôle Nord au Pôle Sud. Depuis notre rencontre en 2014, dans les Canaries, nous tournons et filmons toutes nos aventures sur Facebook.

Depuis notre départ, nous avons traversé l'océan Atlantique, navigué jusqu'au Groenland et hiverné dans les glaces pendant 130 jours, sans assistance, ni moyen de communication. Nous avons ensuite traversé à la voile le fameux Passage du Nord-Ouest en 32 jours et … 30 œufs !

On est d’ailleurs super fiers d’écrire qu’en plus du fait que je sois le plus jeune marin, Monique est la seule poule au monde à avoir accompli une telle aventure.

À travers nos vogages, nous souhaitons témoigner de la beauté mais surtout de la fragilité de notre planète. Nous espérons faire bouger les lignes et encourager les jeunes générations à protéger leur monde et à aller au bout de leurs rêves et de leurs projets. Vous pouvez découvrir toutes nos actions sur notre site internet : www.guirecsoudee.com

Notre prochaine expédition ? Rejoindre l’Antarctique. Un voyage de plus de 7 000 miles nous attend. Nous sommes déjà partis de San Francisco et allons passer environ deux mois en mer, sans escale avant de rejoindre le continent glacé.

Tout cela est aussi possible grâce à votre soutien qui nous permet de continuer à mettre à bien nos projets  tout en restant indépendants.


Amicalement,

Guirec et Monique

    To reach Antarctica, our boat needs many repairs - a new radar to spot icebergs, stronger sails to withstand the gales, new winches, and much more - including of course 12 months’ worth of food for both of us.

    We would love to share the adventure with you as much as possible.This necessitates an upgrade in communication equipment, new audio & video material, and a satellite connection that costs nearly $4,000 a month.

    All told, including repairs, amounts to a budget of well over $50,000 (in case there’s a generous donor who would like to underwrite the whole adventure? ;)

     Pour atteindre l'Antarctique, notre bateau a besoin de nombreuses réparations : un nouveau radar pour repérer les icebergs, des voiles plus robustes pour résister aux coups de vent, de nouveaux winchs et bien plus encore - y compris bien sur 12 mois de nourriture pour nous deux.

    Nous aimerions partager l'aventure avec vous autant que possible. Cela nécessite une mise à niveau de notre équipement de communication, du nouveau matériel audio et vidéo, et une connexion par satellite qui coûte près de 4000 $ par mois.

    Au total, tout cela représente un budget de plus de 50 000 $ (au cas ou un donateur super généreux voudrait souscrire à toute l’aventure ! )
