Why did you choose the skipper Benjamin Dutreux?
We are proud to support this young, committed skipper. He firmly supports the Water Family association, whose mission is to educate about the preservation of water, our health and all living things. From 2018, Benjamin takes "Flaggy" the mascot of the Water family aboard his Imoca. As a partner, we also support this association – “Du flocon à la vague” - through our open days where the children of MG Tech employees will be made aware of the preservation of our planet through games.
ALL BEHIND BENJAMIN DUTREUX!
What events does MG Tech plan to sponsor?
After a superb race in the Vendée Globe in 2020 where he took the 9th position, we supported in 2021 the duo Benjamin Dutreux and Damien Seguin around the Transat Jacques Vabre. The values of the inclusion and water preservation really marked this edition.
Once again this year, MG Tech is renewing its sponsorship of skipper Benjamin Dutreux, alongside the Water Family-Du Flocon à la Vague association, with a view to the Route du Rhum. The opportunity for MG Tech to remind its commitment to sustainable development.
In 2022, we will find Benjamin Dutreux on his new Imoca boat to support him in the following races:
- The Arctic Vendée, starting June 12, 2022 in Les Sables d'Olonne (France) to Islande
- The Azimut challenge, from September 13 to 18, 2022 in Lorient (France)
- The Route du Rhum, departure on November 06 from St Malo (France) to Guadeloupe

Benjamin, sponsor of the Water Family association
Since 2009, the Water Family has been developing educational actions for schools and businesses to raise awareness of the crucial issue of water management and the protection of our health by educating and promoting good practices. Their facilitators were able to intervene during our family open days to raise awareness among the children of MG Tech employees.
