In Normandy, the All Purpose Group is represented by Mathieu Doudeau in Le Havre and Adrien Vergnot in Caen-Ouistreham.

Mathieu Doudeau in Le Havre

Mathieu Doudeau has been sailing since childhood. At the age of 15, he began racing firstly in national and then international events. He then worked preparing race boats in the late 90s (Figaro, Mumm 30, Open 60) while he was a student. His passion for sailing took over definitively when he became manager of the Elvstrom Sails loft in Le Havre.


"After six years, working with the customer base I had built up, I joined All Purpose in 2008. It was there that I met Adrien Vergnot (sales representative in Caen), and together we created our own loft in 2012, called Manche Innovation, where we proudly fly the ALL PURPOSE colours and we thank the group for supporting our development."

Adrien Vergnot in Caen

Adrien Vergnot has been racing for over 15 years. He first raced in dinghies, competing in several national championships, before moving on to bigger boats. He spent two seasons on the Open 7.50 "Port de Caen Ouistreham" skippered by Fabien Delahaye. He has been a sailmaker for the past 5 years.


"It is natural for me to be in a career which combines life ashore and offshore. Boating is an integral part of me, and as a matter of fact, my father was director of a shipyard and my grandfather was a marine cartographer."
