Hi, my name is Simon. I was born in Odense, Denmark, in June 2004. I have been living in Switzerland sinCE 2008 and I am a German citizen.
My first sail was on my parent's small yacht off KerteminDe, Denmark. In 2012, When I was eigth years old, I took my first opti training lessons in my sailing club, SC Stäfa. In 2013 I was admitted to the regional talent team, the Swiss Sailing Team Region 5. In 2014 I became a member of the European MacLaughlin Optimist team (and got a brand new boat ;-)). In 2015 I became a member of Swiss Sailing's Talent Pool, the Swiss national sailing team and was selected for 2016, too. I qualified for the European Championships 2017 in Bourgas/Bulgaria.
All my family sails. Well, except formy little sister. My big brother Niklas is a SSTR5 sailor as well, he sailed the Laser while was stiLl on the opti. my parents sail the 470.
My ultimate goal is to become an olympian, preferable in a 470. A participation in The 2028 Olympics would be really cool.
I will start sailing the 420 with my brother as soon as I am back from the Europeans.
