My name is Maxime Le Roux. I'm 33 years old merchant marine captain, currently working in offshore industry. I had some extra-professional sailing experience, as for instance a trip back to Antarctica on my own sailing boat. I founded Circus Ocean in 2019, with the idea to fortify an existing network of weather routers, experienced at sea and skilled in weather and oceanography. The project started in 2015 after meeting Pierre Lasnier, weather router over the last 30 years with his company MeteoMer. He wanted to transmit to active sailors his precious knowledge, in order to make them able to watch on each other. Who more than a seaman can understand a seaman? Today, we are a dozen being formed by Pierre, and four of us are working with Circum Ocean in a independent professionnal way.
