Fourth in Crans, Team Tilt keeps the lead in the D35 Trophy

14 September 2015    Décision 35  

Team Tilt took part in the seventh event of the D35 Trophy 2015, in Crans près Céligny close to Nyon this weekend. The Décision 35 helmed by Sébastien Schneiter was leading the overall ranking of the season ahead of this Grand Prix, and therefore kept a close eye on its direct rival Alinghi. Finishing fourth after the nine races sailed Saturday and Sunday, Team Tilt keeps the lead on the D35 Trophy ranking, only one point ahead of Alinghi. The final winner of the season will be known after the last Grand Prix at the Société Nautique de Genève, in two weeks.

The eleven teams sailed in medium winds this weekend : six races were sailed on Saturday, whereas Sunday the wind came out late, around 2pm.

« Of course it would have been better to finish in front of Alinghi this weekend, but it’s part of the game », explains crew member Jonas Schagen. « The races will be very interesting in Geneva for the last Grand Prix of the season – we will give our best and remain very vigilant ! We lacked intensity onboard this weekend, and missed some important moves. We know what is to be worked onboard these next days to be ready ! »

Bryan Mettraux has the same feeling than his mate : « The last event will be very interesting with such a tight ranking, we will fight very hard to win the overall season! »
