" As the initiator of this encounter between an industrial group and two associations, we were impressed by the environmental, societal and sporting values conveyed by this project. "
" Through this partnership. Olmix Group wishes to share its vision of the environment and the blue economy in Brittany. Its agreement with skipper Pierre Antoine, a regular fixture in multihull ocean racing, to take the helm of a legendary trimaran with a remarkable list of awards , is intended to promote unexplored maritime assets. "
" We have always considered that a vessel of this type, with its remarkable history, should be the promoter of a more comprehensive project than the mere sporting achievements. In this perspective, I am very proud that the entire team of Gamin-Océan defends OLMIX colors and values. Making the best use of a natural raw material for animal and human health purposes is perfectly in line with our initial project and should be supported. I also wish that this ship became the flag bearer of all Bretons acting in the algae industry, whatever the extent of their involvement. "
"Promoting maritime assets and participatory marine sciences: such is the convergence of our objectives and the complementarity of our work that it only took us a few days to accept this partnership. Pierre is a very experienced ocean sailor and winner of several races and is concerned about environmental issues".
" Our partnership came naturally. Olmix and its sailing team combine a powerful, versatile trimaran with a great project and talent. Our goal is to achive the single-handed Route du Rhum 2014. "
