Louis Justin, Lecturer

Louis was born and grew up in Normandy. After graduating from Europe’s leading business and management school, École des Hautes Études Commerciales, he spent four years in Australia and New Zealand, during which he took every opportunity to thoroughly explore these countries, as well as neighbouring Pacific-Ocean lands and islands. He completed his Master’s Degree at Melbourne Business School, after which he joined the expedition cruising industry; initially in the Polar Regions, then around the world.
As a lecturer, Louis shares his knowledge of the history of exploration and the sciences that made geographical discoveries possible. High on his list of interests are the voyages of the Vikings, Normans and Polynesians, and the first European ventures on the high seas: his favourite topics therefore include the discoveries of unknown oceans and continents, the races to the New Worlds, the quests for long-sought maritime routes, the explorations of Earth’s remotest areas, and the conquest of the poles. Louis’s interest for the natural world enables him to discuss subjects such as geophysics, navigation, weather and climate, geographical geology and understanding volcanoes — their birth, their life, their distribution, and impacts on mankind.

When not guiding or sailing, Louis continues his research, either in Normandy or in Polynesia, flies small planes, or travels to take photographs of volcanic eruptions. Louis holds unlimited certifications (from the United Kingdom’s Royal Yachting Association and France) to drive motor boats (as well as S.T.C.W. 95 certifications).
