French sailor (skipper), born to Jacques (dead in 2014), director of the Arthaud publishing house: he specialized in mountain books (based in Grenoble). In 1974, she was victim of a car accident (coma, paralysis, 6 months hospital) and then decided to sail.
In 1990, Flo won the solo "Route du Rhum" (like Franck Cammas 20 years later) and the "Transpacific" in 1997 with Bruno Peyron. She is considered the greatest female skipper along with Ellen MacArthur. In 2015, she died in a collision between two helicopters (in Argentina) while she was participating in a reality TV program presented by her friend Louis Bodin.
Known as "La petite fiancée de l'Atlantique," she was nicknamed "Mimine" by other sailors.
She had a daughter, Marie (born in 1993), with sailor Loîc Lingois, who prefers horses.
Married in 2005 with Eric Charpentier (then separated).
