Cédric de Kervenoael succeeds Halvard Mabire as President of Class40


The Class40 AGM, held on the 11th of March, saw Matthieu Perraut, Quentin le Nabour and William Mathelin-Moreaux elected to the Class40 Board. They join Kito De Pavant, Pietro Luciano, Antoine Magré, Michael Hennessy and Halvard Mabire, who has stood down from the role of president after 8 years of service.

The following day, the Board unanimously elected Cédric de Kervenoael as the class’s new president.

A member of the class since 2014, and a board member since 2017, Cédric de Kervenoael is one of the Corinthian sailors who are an integral part of Class40.  He is well-versed in the particulars of offshore racing, having been involved in the sport for thirty years.

A man of St Malo at heart and of La Rochelle by adoption, Cédric entered the Class40 circuit in 2015 and competed in the Route du Rhum in 2018 while continuing to practise as a lawyer in Paris. Working alongside Halvard Mabire, whose experience running the class he plans to draw on, Cédric and the new Board’s aim will be to continue developing the class and overseeing its growth while retaining the ingredients of its success, namely a class of affordable competitive boats which enable Corinthian and professional sailors alike to compete in the great offshore classics.

On the new President’s agenda will be overseeing the Class40 race calendar along with the creation of new events, and maintaining good relations between the class and race organisers. He would also like to see greater scrutiny of rules compliance and contain the costs of Class40s without impacting their performance.  

Cédric will be supported in these tasks by Vanessa Boulaire who has been appointed Managing Director, François Angoulvant, who takes on the role of Chief Measurer, and the whole of the new Board.
