Challenge us

We thrive as sailors when we have a challenge. The last years we have choosen a few different challenges:

Melges 24

We took on the challenge in 2012 to compete in the Melges 24 Class sponsored by EFG, a Private Bank based in Switzerland. After 4 years of sailing we won the 2015 Melges 24 Worlds.

Marstom 32

We now run a M32 program in Europe. The M32 class is taking the sailing world by storm. This boat is the platform for the World Match Racing Circuit as well as 3 different Sailing Series around the world.


Chris Rast has been competing in the International Moth class since 2009. He enjoys the dedication you need to compete. In 2015 he placed 7th at the highly competitive 112 boat Moth Worlds.
