Alexia Barrier, a lover of the sea and of sailing!
“I started sailing at the age of 12.
My parents had a 6-metre sailboat moored in Antibes. On the weekends, we would regularly make the crossing to the Lérins islands. And when my father took part in corporate regattas, he took me on board with him and let me help in the manoeuvres. So I was already a lover of the sea and of sailing. It was only at the age of 25 that I started solo ocean racing, after being ranked 4th in the world in Match Racing at the age of 18.”
