Who is Clément ? Captain and founder Le Bateau Français

Young quadra with curly hair, small creases at the corners of the eyes, salty skin, feet size 46 a detail that counts at sea! He gains in balance on a sailboat in the middle of the Atlantic but loses in choice of shoe in Paris (laughs).


As rightly said, time at sea, he has passed. Seven years of sailing, like a Corto Maltese… during which he put his huge feet on yachts, sailboats, catamarans, from the smallest to the largest, from the most luxurious to the most savage. Leading him to unnameable islands because of their beauty, marveling at thousands of sunsets over the sea every day is exhilarating, isn't it? So, I will not talk to you about Australia, Polynesia or the Caribbean or the West Indies or all its places if

magnificent classified in the tourist catalog of “faraway paradise destinations…”

Let “lointaiiiiines” resonate in our minds, as you will have understood, it is not the call of the sea that he hears but the call of Paris! Have a drink with friends, tell them about the “sailor's clichés”, laugh with your family, keep this dream shared with your elders.

And while he becomes the narrator of his “life style“, with his lively eyes and his air of assurance, he likes to devour his father with his gaze, drinking a little whiskey without ice not too peated, telling his “love stories” on the islands with his mother, calling his brother and sharing a sports session between “bro”; grow his mustache, these nieces will have a blast pulling it on him when they see him... but will they recognize him this time around? I feel compelled to hum this Gold song “Captain Forsaken”, remember this is New Wave time! are you singing it now? but he is not, he preferred to shout “captain one day always captain” Because in reality, one day in Paris, one of the most beautiful capitals in the world! He decided not to go back, a good real bed is so much better (laughs), and to let himself go in the real world: he left his flip-flops for a floating immersion in Paris, just enough time to get his feet back in earth, to see a metaphor there, yes! but not without meaning: his earthly paradise, Paris, city of lights, giving birth to a new adventure.

One day, Le Bateau Français
