What a fantastic week! We sailed really well. Of course a few little mistakes have been made, but the tough racing is what we came for... and we qualified Switzerland for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games!!! By winning the Medal race we have finished our week on a high! We are super super happy with this result.
You can view the medal race on Youtube with some great shots from a helicopter. Also a little interview on SRF Sport Aktuel.
Thank you all for your amazing support!
End of the qualifications:
What a crazy beginning of the championship. After waiting on shore and on the water due to the lack of wind, we were waiting on shore because of too much wind :) But today, after our 4th day of regatta, we could finish our qualification phase. We sailed really good and scored a 1,2,13,1,8. We are entering the finales in 2nd position! Go go go team BB
The last video from our training in Santander.. have a look!
Santander is such an awesome place to sail. We have had 10-15 knots and sun every day so fare. Wonderful.
