In the realm of windsurfing, Antoine Albeau stands as a colossus, whose achievements have once again been celebrated at the French Sailing Federation Sailor of the Year Awards held at the iconic Olympia in Paris. Albeau’s exceptional skills, relentless dedication, and unparalleled accomplishments have earned him the prestigious recognition, marking his 26th World Title at the Prince of Speed – International Speed Windsurfing Class (ISWC) World Championship 2023, along with two new World Records secured during the POS World Record Attempt in June 2023.

Antoine Albeau’s recognition as the French Sailing Federation Sailor of the Year is a well-deserved honor that encapsulates the essence of his extraordinary career and is putting ISWC and speed windsurfing in the spotlight, for which we are grateful.

As Albeau continues to push the boundaries of what is possible on the water, his legacy serves as an inspiration to both current and future generations of windsurfers.
