“Because there is no better ambassador than a young person to raise awareness among their peers”


The future of our planet is in everyone's hands, but especially those of future generations, and there are no better ambassadors for young people than young people themselves.

Based on this observation, the USE IT AGAIN team decided to launch USE IT AGAIN For YOUTH by applying the concept of the USE IT AGAIN Trimaran, renovated according to the principles of the circular economy. The concept is as follows, recover an old racing boat, repair it according to the same principles (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), and prepare it for high-level offshore racing.

The skipper of this first USE IT AGAIN for YOUTH boat is Titouan Pilliard. An 18-year-old high school student, navigator committed to the climate with the Youth for Climate association and ambassador for the Children For The Ocean association, Titouan is Romain's son.

Together, Titouan and Romain completed the last stage of the World Tour in 2022 between Cape Town in South Africa and Trinité-sur-Mer, 5,800 miles covered in 25 days.

They signed their first double-handed victory together on the USE IT AGAIN trimaran in the legendary race “COWES – DINARD ST-MALO” in July 2023. Titouan will be presented with the Yacht Club de France trophy on this occasion for his victory at such a young age, 17 years old, unheard of! This promises…


From 2024:

  • Purchase of an old racing boat then renovation and technical preparation according to the principles of the circular economy
  • Coaching double-handed then single-handed offshore racing
  • Shares of sensitization alone or with Romain (especially during Change Now)
  • Race navigation under the colors of USE IT AGAIN For YOUTH
