Alexia Barrier completes her Vendée Globe in 111 daysBack to list Competition
Fourth woman and 24th in this Vendée Globe, Alexia Barrier just crossed the finish line this morning, Sunday February 28 at 7:23 am.
The TSE-4myplanet solo skipper completed her first solo round-the-world trip without stopover and without assistance.
La Niçoise, little known to the general public, surprised more than one over these 111 days at sea.
She is credited with 111 days, 17 hours and 3 minutes. Alexia took 31 days longer than Vendée Globe winner Yannick Bestaven. Hats off!
An accomplished athlete and a committed citizen, the Niçoise can just as easily line up at the start of a triathlon, organize a day for the benefit of women in situations of exclusion or even educate school children about saving the Ocean.
Created in 2010, its 4myplanet association's role is to help preserve the ocean by carrying out concrete environmental and educational missions.
After the celebrations, champagne and pizza, she will head straight to the hospital to check her injured back.
I had to crawl into the boat. From this Vendée Globe, my first round the world, I can remember that nothing is impossible. By dint of will, work and optimism, we can fix any challenge. Alexia Barrier.
