Web serie about a sailing and diving trip around the world to meet sharks and work for their conservation


« Lords of the Ocean » is the brainchild of four friends, passionate about diving, the oceans and sailing, who decided to combine their skills to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Since the dawn of history, one living being has raised our greatest admiration and respect: The Shark.

It is true that this fish has a bad image, generated by a lack of knowledge and because it awakens the deep-rooted fears of a public fed by scary movies portraying the shark as a man-eating predator. Which it is not.



Most shark species are in danger, in particular because of despicable overfishing. As the rare whistle-blowers face relative indifference, we have decided to act and have imagined an original way to change the image of the shark, while integrating our goal in a project that brings together our passion and taste for pushing themselves beyond our limits.

In early 2019, aboard their sailing boat, we will leave Brest until Guadalupe Island to meet the five species of sharks deemed most dangerous to humans. On the way, we will meet bull sharks, great hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks whitetip sharks and the great white shark.



With this adventure, we will realize an off the beaten tracks documentary film (or rather off the beaten currents). Our objective is to show to every ones that the shark is not the monster we think it is and create a public interest for its protection.

To enhance the value of our project, we plan to sail in a one hundred percent autonomous way. It will do so through equitable fishing, experimenting with marine gardens, conservation techniques, and by using desalinators and renewable energies.



Who are we?


CYRIELLE HOUARD

30 years old, Diving Instructor

This solid adventuress will be the Spielberg of the group! Not only her directing and filming experience will allow to present the incredible adventure, but the boys will also feel reassured by her presence. Indeed, the young diving instructor has worked since 2015 with the bull sharks on the famous Playa del Carmen spot in Mexico!







JÉRÔME BOURDILLON

30 years old, Hydrographer/Oceanographer

The captain of the boat! This avid free diver and scuba diver (divemaster) is unconditionally in love with sharks and has already dragged his flippers all over the world as an expat engineer (Kenya, Iraq, Philippines, Angola, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Gabon, Nigeria…)






BENJAMIN LAIR

28 years old, Naval Engineer

Free diver, diver (rescue diver), fisherman, and handyman. This total breakneck has worked in Mauritius, Brazil, Malaysia and more lately in in Saudi Arabia where he could train his apnea with sharks. Never serious but always measured, he is always on the lookout for new experiences.










EMMANUEL LAMOUREUX

26 years old, Nurse

Manu has been passionate about sailing from a very young age. He has renovated two second-hand sailboats and has extensive experience in the maintenance and the renovation of boats. He is the ideal handyman to have on board! He is fascinated by the sea in all its forms. He will also be dealing with all aches and pains on board.







What's the money for?

Our budget for this nine months travel is described as follow :

Thanks to the crowdfounding, we hope to fund the safety equipment and a part of the travel expense, which are the two last things to pay.

- For the Safety equiment, we need an offshore life-raft (1240 euros), a Mob tracker to take the watch (200 euros), an AIS receiver and antenna (410 euros), a GPS epirb tracker (400 euros) and a first aid kit (250 euros)

-The travel expense corresponds to all the visa and the Panama canal (around 1000 euros for the Panama canal), the entrance for the natural reserves (4500 euros for five days in Coco Island), and the food (fishing equipment, spiruline crop, and all the food when fishing is prohibited in the natural reserves)
