Techno 293 World Championship
22 Jul 14
The first race day morning at the Bic Techno 293 Worlds in Brest, France was a calm one with breeze at a minimum but the racers got onto the course late in the afternoon to complete one race.
Brazil has a proud record in Olympic sailing, in fact sailing is one of the nation's most successful Olympic sports. Torben Grael is the only sailor to have won five Olympic medals, whilst Robert Scheidt is only one behind with two golds and two silvers. At Beijing 2008 Fernanda Oliveira and Isabel Swan became the first female Brazilian sailors to win an Olympic medal. Brazil also showed its dedication to the future of the sport as it hosted the 2009 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship with great success.
