Their portraits

Julie BOSSARD, Quality Engineer and High Performance Athlete

Born in Brest, Julie is a child of the sea. At the age of 12, she began to sail as an “optimist” in competition. After 4 years, she decided to enter a sports and study program at the high school. Julie started in 470 (a small dinghy for two) before turning to match racing. In 2013, the 49er FX made its debut in the Olympic Games. Julie decided to try the boat and became passionate about this discipline. Since 2011, she has been working as a supplier quality engineer for Scalian Equert. In order to continue sailing, Julie has established a very tight schedule allowing her to organize her working time according to her training and the various races.

2017, Julie joins forces with Aude COMPAN to take up the Olympic challenge to Tokyo in 2020.

In 2011, she joined the INSA in Toulouse and she is currently in 4th year of Process Engineering. In order to carry out her studies and her sporting career successfully, Aude has a timetable arranged according to her courses, training and competitions. In 2013, she is considered a top athlete in the Olympic series and specializes in the 49erFX. Accompanied by her helmswoman Sarah STEYAERT, she competed at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games where she finished 6th.

What is a 49erFX ?

The 49erFX is an Olympic women’s doubles team that is starting its 2nd Olympiad for the Tokyo Olympics. Fast and unstable, this boat is a dinghy, a skiff type designed on the basis of the 49er in order to adapt it to the weight of female crews. This single-hull boat has a very thin bow and has wings on each side to increase the lever arm.

TERIA has been a partner in our project since 2018 !
We had the opportunity to meet an enthusiastic and dynamic team. They knew how to trust us and we are proud to represent TERIA by wearing its colours all over the world aboard our boat during our competitions !
Thank you TERIA !
