Several top-ranking foreign sailors join the SFS sailing boat crew, like the Danish Olympic medallist Martin Kirketerp, already fully integrated.
Lionel Péan discovered Martin Kirketerp’s true worth aboard the Maxi Yacht Sojana. This Olympic champion in the 49er class at the Beijing games knows VOR 70s perfectly having crewed aboard the Sanya. Lionel considers him an outstanding helmsman who acquired his considerable offshore experience on a round-the-world voyage at the helm of a VOR 70.
He was also to be seen on Maserati with Giovanni Soldini. An experienced, good-natured sailor who is invited to participate in all events in the 2015 programme.
