Only one position remains to complete the sailing crew. “It was a hard decision,” explained Bekking. “All candidates are great sailors and huge team players. But in the end, you have to look at who is the most all-rounded sailor. “Enthusiasm and talent are the characteristics that we most pay attention to. And Louis is an excellent helmsman and a fantastic trimmer who learns quickly. “Rokas is very eager and all-rounded.
