Master Finn sailors of Team Felix Austria rock in Valencia

By March 7, 2013Blog, Front Page

It is now the sixth day in our camp for them and they are training hard, spending long hours on the water and getting better at their game. They love Finn sailing, they are racing against the pros and at times their bows are at the front of the fleet…

What a fantastic boat the Finn is! Very young athletes, pros and a huge community of masters all share the same passion, the same drive and the same quality. Every boat has a soul and the Finn is special. It is no coincidence that the current IOC president, Jacques Rogge, was a Finn sailor, as were the two previous ISAF presidents, Peter Tallberg and Paul Henderson. They all love the sport and devote their lives to make it better. It is not by chance either that the likes of Jochen Schuemann, Russell Coutts, Ben Ainslie, Valentin Mankin, Paul Elvstroem and many, many more sailed on the Finn.

Long live the Finn! Long live the master fleet and Team Austria Felix!
