One year before the games, the official Test Event is being held in Enoshima (JPN). From August 17 to 22, the best sailors of the world race in the venue for some final tuning. The personal selection for the swiss sailors is also in stake : TOP 5 would mean a direct selection, while a TOP 8 makes them selectionable by Swiss Olympic.
Sébastien Schneiter felt confident before the first race on August 17 : “We’re looking forward to start racing ! It’s going to be short but intense, in a small 22 boat fleet. We’ll have all sailing conditions this week, with strong wind today getting lighter in the next days.”
Nils Theuninck (Finn) and Maud Jayet (Laser Radial) also race under the colours of Team Tilt this week.
Thanks to the Jiva Hill and Omega, as well as Swiss Sailing Team, the sailors can take the best of this week in Enoshima.
