A human adventure
Our sailing adventure began with an encounter between two enthusiastic entrepreneurs, when LODIGROUP Chairman Alexis Lockman and fishing fleet owner Loïc Escoffier met at a France-New Zealand rugby international some fifteen years ago.
United both by their keen interest in the game and their shared values, they decided to take up a new challenge together: the construction of a catamaran decked out in the colours of LODIGROUP.
«Loïc and I have known each other for some fifteen years now. During a chance conversation one day, I asked him whether he would be up to taking part in the Route du Rhum transatlantic yacht race again. He said he would, provided the project was sound. That gave me the idea of supporting him. We went to try out some boats together, and then decided to build this all-new catamaran.
Loïc is a straightforward, highly-motivated person who’s committed in everything he does. Lodigroup identifies with all of these values; I’m sure Loïc will know how to engage all our employees alongside him in this sailing adventure!»
