“Music to escape and find myself alone”

Videographer and embedded reporter Guillaume Tauran was born in Paris in 1997, but his parents moved very quickly to Brittany, to Yvelines and then to Périgord. From a very young age, drawing has never left him.
Today, it is in the form of a cartoon report that he practices it, with the desire to meet others, the world and its challenges.
After his matriculation, he took a year’s “break”, which took him from Malaysia to Europe, to focus on what he wanted to do immediately and to find a follow-up for the future. On the volunteer program, restoration of historic hotels in Venice, learning to sail… On the return of this year, the sailing project takes shape in the form of a commitment on board the Hermione.


  • A top man’s life aboard the Hermione at the Pack editions.
    With Guillaume Tauran we boardHermione, for a return trip to Rochefort, the ship’s home port. When you set foot there, you live with a unique crew, because they are all volunteers! The rhythm of the watches, the rigor and commitment, the motivation to be part of a unique human and maritime adventure, but also the difficulty of the maneuvers and the team spirit, narrated by Guillaume Tauran, himself a top man on the edge.
  • Guillaume Tauran prepares for the manned race aboard the sailboat Pen-Duick VII’Ocean Global Race, leaving France in September 2023, on a round-the-world journey with a stopover / without assistance and without means of communication. The crew was recruited by selection and a hard training period begins in late December to April.
