Vent Portant


Since its creation 21 years ago, the international sailing charter agency Vent Portant has been patiently building its trade policy around two major areas: the quality of its service and a vast selection of cruises, destinations and craft, all rigorously selected. Our goal is simple — ever increasing customer satisfaction.



With its solid, professional and competent team, Vent Portant offers all the guarantees of a successful charter.


General management

Odon – +33 (0)6 48 95 98 47

Odon van GAVER, manager of Vent Portant, subsidiary of Kiriacoulis France, is both a hugely experienced sailor with several thousand nautical miles under his belt on all the oceans of the globe, and a businessman recognized around the nautical world as being equally comfortable in charter as in the establishment of new bases, the organization of cruises, construction, sales and preparation. With the involvement of the company’s employees, he has put in place an effective dynamic which works to reinforce the fundamentals of Vent Portant — commitment, efficiency and respect for the client, always developing new complementary activities.
