Alexia, from the Mediterranean Sea, started sailing at a very early age.
Sailing teacher at 15, she worked in the sailing yachting industry as co-skipper or crew, while studying Sports Management at Nice University of Sports, UFR-STAPS.
She then became a professional sailor, and top-level match-racer, to finally get into single-handed offshore racing.
In 20 years, she has already covered more than 120 000 nautical miles around the globe, and took part in 14 races across the Atlantic, including 4 single-handed crossings on Mini Transat, Figaro 2, 60-foot monohull and multihull.
In 2009 she created 4myplanet, and thus became the first woman to attempt a single-handed around-the-globe tour for the benefit of science.

It is on Romain Attanasio’s IMOCA, who completed 15th in the 2016-2017 Vendee Globe Challenge, that Alexia set her heart in February 2018.
This monohull won the famous Fastnet Race in 1999-2000 with Catherine Chabaud, then the Velux 5 Océans with American skipper Brad Van Liew.
She then became Tanguy de Lamotte’s Initiatives Cœur from 2012 à 2015, finishing 10th in the Vendée Globe 2012 and 8th in the 2013 Transat Jacques Vabre.
