Paprec

Jean-Luc Petithuguenin’s Paprec Recyclage Brittany based crew are mainly amateurs skippered by Stephan Neve.
 
The owner is a very well known sailing enthusiast who is founder and chairman of Paprec Recyclage. The company is very supportive of french sailing, besides the TP52 it supported IMOCA Open 60 and MOD70 campaigns.
 
Paprec Recyclage raced for the French team at the final Admiral’s Cup in 2003 and then was part of the winning Commodore’s Cup team in 2006, after being second in 2004, with Neve on the Synergia 40 of the same name.
 
Before buying their first TP52 they successfully raced an A40RC under IRC.
In 2014 they acquired Rán 2011 and for the 2018 season they copied that move by replacing their boat with Rán 2015.

In 2018 we will see Paprec racing in three of the five Super Series events, the two in Croatia and the final event in Valencia.

This close knitted amateur team of friends, racing at substantially less cost than the full pro teams, deserves a close look by anybody interested in grand prix racing on amateur crew basis.
