news - Excellent debut for Bekatorou on the Marinepool Team

Mar 15 2010

Best possible result for Bekatorou, GRE, in her first showing for the Marinepool team!

Sofia Bekatorou does not need any introduction.

Olympic gold medallist, manyfold world and european champion, 2fold ISAF sailor of the year. Somebody who ranks very, very high in the who-is-who of sailing!

It is a great pleasure for Marinepool to announce that Sofia and her crew joined the Marinepool team and has signed a cooperation agreement until the end of 2013, thus including the preparation and the London Olympic Games 2012.

Bekatorou has changed from the Yngling, in which she won bronze at the Beijing Olympic Games and is now sailing the new Olympic match race class Elliott 6m. In her debut on the Marinepool squad she showed her class immediately. While she was not taking part in the Worldcup start of 2010 in Miami, she started with an impressive win at the Athens Eurolymp regatta into the season.

A great result against an international panel including the highly regarded Dutch and Russian teams.

Our congratulations!
