The Olympic year had a great start with a WorldCup podium ... but the true objective of the two sailors of the C.V. Estavayer and Gstaad Yacht Club was to confirm their participation in Rio OG thanks to a top 12 nation finish at the World Championship. Goal achieved ! There is 172 days left to the Games to improve some details with their new coach Mitch Booth ... and get closer to the podium.

"We spent six weeks of competition and training in Florida. This World Championship has been especially difficult and physically challenging" reported Nathalie and Matias after the 16 races "We will be happy to fight in Rio to reach our dream of Olympic medal "

A big THANK YOU to all of our friends, partners, sponsors and team aboard of our Olympic adventure.

Your team B&B, Matìas et Nathalie
