Team France to join the inaugural RS Venture Connect World Championships in Oman

September 7, 2022
RS Venture Connect - Saamuel Rammo

Olivier Ducruix and Ange Margaron will be representing France in the RS Venture Connect World Championships this November 2022, hosted by Oman Sail. Ange and Olivier met in Corsica, September 2021 in an RS Venture Connect training course for the visually impaired. This first meeting between them allowed them to get to know each other and to develop this project, working towards the World Championships in Oman.

Gilles Guyon has taken on the role of training Ange and Olivier. Having coached Olivier previously with the Blind Sailing Federation, he said yes straight away when asked to support training for the RS Venture Connect Worlds! Pierre Gins, from Mare Inseme, has been supporting them through this journey and is excited the this event will be taking place, not only for the opportunity but also for disability awareness.

Team France are on a mission that is wider than the RS Venture World Championships 2022 itself. They wish to represent France in the World’s para sailing circuit in the RS Venture Connect and showcase the world that there is international interest for para sailing. All in an effort to back the reinstatement campaign for the 2028 Olympics

In the build up to this event, they have been completing an intense training scheme between March to October 2022. Together they will participate in the World Cup this September in France, just before the RS Venture Connect World Championships in Oman. We can’t wait to welcome them and all other nations to this fantastic event!
