Young skipper supported by the City of Deauville and the Deauville Yacht Club

Eric Delamare has always sailed with his family, members of the Deauville Yacht Club. A student at the Dumont d'Urville high school in Caen, he lives in Ouistreham. After sailing a sand yacht from the age of seven (he won the Normandy championship three times) and competing on 420s, he became passionate about sailing on a liveaboard at the age of 12. Since he was 15, he has often sailed single-handed on the Bay of Seine and remains very attached to his original club - the Deauville Yacht Club.

The beautiful story between the City of Deauville and Eric begins in 2016. That year, the Solitaire Urgo Le Figaro starts from the Bassin Morny. We remember among the skippers involved the young Cécile Laguette. Three days before the start, she had not found a sponsor to finance her race. The City of Deauville gave her last minute support to encourage her. In return, Cécile agreed to sponsor a young skipper from the Deauville Yacht Club, Eric Delamare. Under her wing, he was able to follow the entire race on board an accompanying boat and benefit from her experience.

A year later, in 2017, Eric Delamare was himself on the starting line of the SOLITAIRE URGO LE FIGARO with the support of the Deauville Yacht Club - his home club - and the City of Deauville. He convinced the "young talent" jury of the Normandy Region, which supported him for two years.

The City of Deauville and the Deauville Yacht Club each provide a financial contribution. In return, Eric Delamare's commitment takes several forms:
- His boat carries the colors of Deauville.
- In contact with the City of Deauville and the Deauville Yacht Club throughout the sailing season, he shares his experience on Deauville's websites and social networks.
- He is particularly committed to organizing exchanges with Deauville schoolchildren: the youngest from the Fracasse school, the young members of the Deauville Yacht Club and more particularly with the young high school students who are members of the UNSS sailing club and the students of the André Maurois high school sailing sports section.
