Thomas Proust is one of those kids like Henry Demesmaeker and other plenty talented catsailor youths.  He currently helms for his father, Eric Proust, owner of Proust Sailing. We hope to see more in the future of this talented French sailor racing F16, F18 , As and why not  a Maxi foiling Trimaran like his fellow countrymen Coville, Gabart, Josse and many others.

Both have been racing in the F16, and also some rides in the Essentiel. We'll make a dedicated post on Thomas next days.
Below final Day report sent by Thomas Proust:
-------------------------------
-------------------------------
48th Grand Prix of the Armistice , 2017.
We had a total of 6 races in very different wind conditions. The first day was a good warm-up because we had not sailed in F16 since the European Championship (July). The second day of races was easier because we could score all bullets. Congratulations to the competitors and the Sailing Club of Bordeaux for this top organization! Now we look ahead for new adventures. #proustsailing #grouperhinos #harken #lirosropes #kinenveux
