Route du Rhum

Ciela Village’s commitment to sailing

Here at Ciela Village, a major player in outdoor hospitality with 4 and 5-star campsites all over France, we share similar values with the sailing community. So, we naturally decided to partner with skipper Erwan Le Roux, who is preparing to relive the legendary solo transatlantic race, the Route du Rhum

This partnership between Ciela Village and Erwan Le Roux is very dear to the president of the group, Thierry Bouchard, who has been passionate about sailing since a young age and was once a skipper himself. 

It has become a winning investment! Since the 2015 Transat Jacques Vabre, the Ciela Village teams have made the boat’s exploits their own through shared values such as courage, team spirit, performance and determination.

Respect for the natural elements, ecology, passion for sports, community and innovation are the terms that best describe our high-end campsites that represent the Ciela Village brand and the 15-meter multihull Ocean Fifty. 

This nautical sponsorship project contributes greatly to our reputation at Ciela Village and is attracting increasing interest, both internally and externally.

Portrait of the Skipper

This exceptional sailor’s record of achievement is impressive: a repeat medalist at the Tour de France à la Voile, three-time winner of the famous Transat Jacques Vabre and also the famous Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe race in 2014.

The skipper’s ability to navigate, manage a team and his mastery of techniques for optimizing performance are qualities that make him a formidable sailor!
