Sailor Alexia Barrier

Sailor Alexia Barrier

Alexia Barrier grew up on the French Riviera. She was already sailing with her parents at the age of 3. 

She probably owes them her profound passion for the oceans.

Age 12, while watching television, she realises that one day, she would sail around the world on her own. 

Sailing teacher at the age of 15, she then works in the yachting industry as co-skipper or crew, while studying Sport Management at the UFR-STAPS (University) of Nice.

Top-level sport competition has always been part of her life.

Aged 25, she decides to take a different path, and jumps into professionnal sailing. 

She starts building her experience, sailing Class 40 , Figaro 2 , 60-footers, and even super-yachts.

She learns with the best, from Florence Arthaud to Dennis Conner among others, who gave her the rigour and organisational skills essential to offshore racing projects.
