The best Nacra 15 sailors have travelled to Lake Silvaplana in Swizerland’s Grison region, not far from St. Moritz, to sail the European Nacra 15 Championships this week from June 26th – July 4th.
The Nacra 15 is a size down from the Olympic Nacra 17 class.
Nine teams from the home country Switzerland are competing. All three top teams from the last 2020 Swiss championship including the winners Axel Grandjean and Marie Mazuay are present for the event.
Other favorites come from France with the bronze medalist from the 2018 Barcelona World Championships – Thomas Proust and Clement Martineau. Another contender for first place is Belgium’s Frederique Van Eupen, winner of the European Championships in 2018.
After a long period of no racing, 2021 is now action packed for the Nacra 15 athletes. These much anticipated Nacra 15 European Championships are a welcome restart to a vibrant, International racing scene.
