I just had an amazing week at Stena Match Cup Sweden as a mechanic. I have learned a lot about the boats, seen a lot of sailing and and also learnt a lot of new maneuvers that I can’t wait to practice with the guys.
For the first time in my life I have been this close to sailing with the absolute elite within Match Racing. I have argued with them about theboats, partied with them and congratulated them on their success. I have even been drinking wine from the Stena Match Cup-trophy (!). It’s been so much fun and it is something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life.
I am now more determined than ever. Within a few years, I want to be the one racing at Stena Match Cup Sweden. I want to become the very best at Match Racing, and I know my team wants that too.
Stay tuned, the goal is set. Hopefully you’ll be with us.

P.S. We (the team of mechanics) may have stolen Björn Hansen’s trophy at the event closing dinner and had our own prize ceremony with Hansen at the mechanic’s container. It was awesome. D.S.
