Dominique Wavre - MirabaudHe was born in Geneva. His father was an engineer and his mother a Swiss tennis champion – no surprise then that Dominique first showed his athletic talents on the tennis courts. He discovered sailing on Lake Geneva at the age of 13, and threw himself into this sport with a passion that has never waned. After sailing all through his student years, it was not long before the young man decided to abandon his post as an art teacher and devote himself entirely to sailing.
