Jean Le Cam (Quimper, Finistère, 27 April 1959) is a French sailor.

Le Cam was crewman with Éric Tabarly and Michel Desjoyeaux, and won the Solitaire du Figaro in 1994, 1996 and 1999.[1] He later took interest in multihull ships.

He finished second in the Vendée Globe 2004-2005, arriving just a few hours after the winner Vincent Riou.

On 6 January 2009, whilst competing in the 2008-2009 edition of the Vendée Globe, he went missing 200 miles from Cape Horn. The overturned boat was discovered with Le Cam alive inside.[2]
