Imagine sails

Esprit Large's navigator, Corentin Douguet, lent his support to Imagine during the Solitaire Urgo Le Figaro race by displaying the Institute's logo on his sail. Starting last August 26th from the port of Le Havre, Corentin came 8th of the race, after 4 stages and nearly 1700 miles traveled. We’d like to congratulate and thank Corentin again for his precious support!

Through this race, Corentin Douguet reaffirms his faithful commitment to the Imagine Institute, and his willingness to help accelerate research to understand genetic diseases and help diagnose and treat them. With the sailor Christophe Ponthieu, with whom he shares common values between sport and research, he had already made Imagine visible during the Transat AG2R La Mondiale.
