Alix de Lamotte, Is a French globetrotter, mechanical engineer and naval architect, who grew up in the French Alps. She is, ‘Super keen about technology and performance in sports.’
Her enthusiasm, resourcefulness and love of people led her to move to New Zealand. Here one of her ‘incredible experiences,’ included working in Emirates Team New Zealand, and winning the America’s cup sailing race in 2017. Until Covid, she mainly worked in the race yacht field.
Craving new challenges, and in lockdown, she planned a new adventure: the Te Araroa trail. This is New Zealand’s longest tramping route at 3,000 kilometres, spanning the length of the North and South Islands. Tramping the full length of the trail takes four to six months.
Searching for support with gear, food and or budget Alix contacted Earth Sea Sky, ‘..because I appreciate both the quality of your gears and the philosophy of sustainability and 100% NZ made.’
