Brief biography of founders and CEO
Antoine Debled is a sailor on Mini-Transat since 1998. He started to work on semi-rigid wingsails in 2006. In 2009 he reluctantly uses a classic sail during the Mini Transat La Rochelle - Salvador de Bahia. It is between the Cape Verde Islands and Brazil, where the sailors are isolated, that he finds the inspiration which will give birth to the current Add-Modules wingsail system : The easiest to obtain a wing is to equip a fabric sail. This system is protected by two patents.
Antoine Debled and its team work in the ADD Technologies SAS company in Lorient and manage the technical development of the system and its commercialisation.
