Olmix Sailing Team
A shared ambition for the environment and the blue economy in Brittany
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."
