Bernard Gallay Interview - SIGNATURE - "Bernard Gallay – from rugby to the high seas"


A highly unusual destiny

In 1981 when he was 22, Bernard was present at the arrival of a transatlantic race in Newport. In 1982, by chance he set sail with the mythical Sir “Robin” Knox-Johnston, a British yachtsman. He was immediately captivated. “This totally fortuitous encounter was the trigger. We crossed the Atlantic double handed! He had tremendous charisma and inspired me with his enthusiasm.” The decision was made, Bernard wanted a life devoted to sailing. An attractive, sea-faring environment where the refined luxury of catamarans is intermingled with the sea spray of storms and calls for the most exotic of destinations. He took part in race after race, becoming a skilled yachtsman, taking part in the Vendée Globe in 1992 and 2000, when he came 8th out of 24 participants. Life through blue-tinted...

Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez 2012
Victory for Genie in the Wally class: the triumph of an explosive cast

The Prince Charles de Bourbon-Siciles’ yacht, one of the oldest of the Wally fleet given her launch in 1995, dominated proceedings after 8 races were run alongside the equally high-performance Dark Shadow, Ryokan and Sensei. With victory in three races and two second places, Genie displayed fantastic potential and revealed a crew with great complementarity and great cohesion, grouped around her owner-helmsman. This first major victory for the ocean-green Wally at Les Voiles de Saint Tropez is the fruit of a two-pronged plan of attack; that of sailing with the utmost professionalism and with a mindset coloured by the relaxed, enthusiastic spirit of Les Voiles. They pulled off this challenge to perfection thanks to the talents of the 18-strong crew in a performance driven by an amazing afterguard including the pure match race specialist Damien Iehl and Jules Verne Trophy holder, Sébastien Audigane; a hard core from…
