Anaïs, Tribord ambassador

Anaïs, Hendaye

Anaïs could have been ambassador for many a sport, but she never thought it'd be sailing!Born in the Hautes-Pyrénées, her childhood was spent between hills and valleys - mountains are a part of who she is:skiing, snowboarding, trail running, canyoning, climbing; she tried every mountain sport she could.But for all that, sailing is what takes up most of her time today.

Anaïs, Tribord ambassador


A sports lover in general, she knew she would get to learn all about the joys of sailing when she started her Tribord internship: a new sport, new sensations, a different kind of pleasure. She never thought a little bet made during her first sailing experience would carry so many consequences:and the end of her 6-month internship, she'd have to be able to sail solo! 

But she isn’t alone, and with the whole Tribord team behind her she's sure she can do it. Through different episodes of an aptly named web series: "6 months to sail solo" she’ll let you follow along as she learns how to sail, and hopes you’ll fall in love with sailing the way she did.


Some basics of safety at sea
Julien was the one to ask when it was just to two of us sailing, he says: “if I fall in now, what do you do?” …um, call the police? Throw you a buoy? Do we have a buoy? Where is the buoy? … PANIC!
