This is me

At the moment, I am a skipper and a helmsman at my club, which is very successful in the 1. Deutschen Segelbundesliga. Before I switched to the Bundesliga, I was sailing in an Olympic boat class for many years. This was the most intensive time I have ever experienced and it has shaped my personality very much.


Being a yachtsman who is sailing the seven seas means being exposed to the natural forces. Storms, heavy seas, coldness, heat, rain. The feeling of reaching physical and mental limits is beyond all description. In such moments you really start to live.
