The Guest – Jean Glavany: “My first horizons were Belle-Ile, Houat and Groix” [Vidéo] – France


First chief of staff of François Mitterrand, Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries when Lionel Jospin was Prime Minister, teacher at Sciences-Po, Jean Glavany was this week the guest of Hubert Coudurier on Tébéo and TébéSud. He returned in particular to his first memories of sailing in Brittany: “It was on the coast of Morbihan, on the Rhuys peninsula where the family house was built, that I started on a dinghy. My first horizons were Belle-Ile, Houat and Groix, then I went down to the Ile de Ré or climbed to the Raz de Sein. And then, we widened our circles, since then I have not stopped sailing around the world (…) we bought a catamaran with friends from La Rochelle. I discovered the West Indies, the Pacific, Cape Horn, Spitsbergen. But for summer cruises, it is rather in the Mediterranean that it happens. “

Better to brake a crazy young dog moving too fast than to run out with someone who is heavy and doesn’t want to move

On the eve of the fortieth anniversary of May 10, 1981, Hubert Coudurier also asked him how, according to him, François Mitterrand would have judged Emmanuel Macron… “He often said to me: you know, Glavany, it is better to slow down a crazy young dog. moving too fast than getting exhausted with someone who is heavy and doesn’t want to move. But he could also have told me: these people who say they are neither right nor left, you will see systematically, you will see it, they are neither left nor left! “
