ALEIX SELLES

Aleix discovered sailing and the love for the oceans at his very early age. The first day he got on a dinghy, a grain of salt got in him and affected his decisions from that moment.

At the age of 14 years old he discovered regattas and embrace them as a way of pushing himself and learning more about the wind and the sea. He raced in dinghies and keel yachts mostly inshore.
Aleix enjoyed offshore sailing for the first time at the age of 16 and slowly got into it. He logged most of his offshore miles in the last few years.

"Racing offshore takes the game up to another level, the skills and knowledge you can learn are infinite "

Aleix studied Naval Architecture and worked with Juan K for the last 7 years, designing some of the most radical designs nowadays.
Getting to sail around the world was a childhood dream for him. Doing it within the Golden Globe Race on a boat he is going to prepare, is taking his dream beyond any expectations and experimenting the circumnavigation on its purest way.

"I’m riding a learning curve up to the start, my life is already changing and I’m growing with the project. I hope we can do this journey together! "
