Bonjour, hello, hola, bom día !
Mercedes & Richard, we sail from a very young age, one on the Rio de la Plata in Buenos Aires and the other in the Bay of Biscay in the Atlantic.
We met at the Spi Ouest France in Trinité sur Mer in 2009, one, a crew member looking for a boarding, the other looking for a crew member. Since then we have been racing together non-stop. This complicity led us to marriage in 2016.
From this moment we have developed our new life plan. This is how we sold our regatta sailboat to replace it in February 2018, with a superb cruising boat. We then took up residence on board on the Bassin d’Arcachon, which allowed us to familiarize ourselves with MR Beelzebuth and to perfect its development.
Our dream is to go on an adventure through the wind, the sea, meetings and heavenly places that we can discover and share around the world and take the time to appreciate each moment.
THE MR BEELZEBUTH PROJECTS
Because it is important for us to share this love of the sea… We have created our association Beelzebuth Animation in order to offer you co-navigation outings which also allow us to bring the boat to life.
Beelzebuth Animation is an association of sea enthusiasts always seeking to get to know it better by sailing. We have learned to love it for the moments of happiness it gives us, but also to respect it so that we can enjoy the marvels it offers us for a long time and still admire the earth with the eyes of the sea for a long time.
The principle ?
Make you live an incredible adventure aboard a prestigious sailboat by sharing the time of a day a sea trip with us!
If you have ever dreamed of sailing on a prestigious sailboat, in the middle of a small paradise, then we can help you realize this dream.
Richard will introduce you to the techniques and pleasures of sailing if you wish and Mercedes will be able to offer you quality dishes with multiple colors and refined tastes.
« Admire the land with the eyes of the sea. »
