Switzerland qualified for Tokyo in the 49er class !

10 August 2018    49er  

Sébastien and Lucien reached the TOP 8 nations at Aarhus Worlds, and selected Switzerland for the Olympic Games in the 49er class. The boys made it to the Medal Race, that will take place tomorrow, Saturday 11th. Eith overall, there’s still much to gain in this final race !

Sébastien : « We’re very happy with how we sailed this week, except today that was pretty tough… Our main goal was to select Switzerland in the 49er class, and we made it! We’re one of the first 8 nations to qualify the country, whereas for Rio we were one of the last ones… It shows the work that we’ve done since then. We can now focus on the games, without any pressure of selecting the country!

Tomorrow, the Medal Race is a bonus. We’ll push hard to try to improve our 8th place overall. »
