Cecilia Wollmann and Michael Wollmann, the teenage siblings, are making very good progress at the Narca 17 World Championship held at La Grande Motte in France.
They are not showing any signs of being in the competition for the very first time and are making headlines at the event. These siblings have made an impressive start at the world championships and have gained their entry for the gold fleet. This is their second regatta event and they represent the Olympic class foiling catamaran.
Cecilia said that she was very happy to be sailing with her partner brother Michael. They have enjoyed every bit of the time that they have so far spent on the regatta event. Cecilia had represented Bermuda in the Laser Radial class at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. She said that they were very happy to be taking part in the gold fleet as they are a very young side. This is the second regatta for the team at Narca 17.
Cecilia said that she was very happy with the progress that she and her brother have made so far. They have faced tough challenges from many of the CA sailors of the world. They had a goal to finish in the top 35. She said that sailing the boat is a learning process and they are still learning how to sail the boat and to sail it on the right track consistently. Cecilia said that both she and her brother are looking forward to the final two days of the gold fleet racing.
The young siblings are currently in the 23rd position among the 47-strong fleet presenters at the event. They recorded a posting on 22-21-21 in their last three races.
Michael said that they are fully aware that they will be facing a new challenge in the gold fleet racing. They are looking to match the performance and the speed of the best sailors in the business.
