The collective as the greatest strength
Austria’s team is led by Nacra17 sailor Thomas Zajac at the SSL Gold Cup 2022. The Olympic bronze medalist of Rio 2016 will fill the Afterguard with double Olympic champions Roman Hagara and Christian Binder.
Hagara, who supports Zajac as a coach in his current Olympic campaign, is considered an absolute multihull and speed expert. After his Olympic career, Binder switched to the big boat scene and was able to prove himself in the RC44 class, among others.
The tasks in the cockpit, on the mast, and bow are taken over by Austria’s Olympic presence. Besides the world ranking list firsts in the 49er, Benjamin Bildstein and David Hussl, Zajac also invited the 470er aces Lukas Mähr and Thomas Czajka as well as Finn sailor Moritz Spitzauer into the boat.
The crew is united by an intensive, long-lasting process, which takes place in the most diverse classes and formats is young but rich in experience, success, and mutual appreciation, and is currently aiming for Tokyo 2021. The SSL Gold Cup is another great opportunity for Zajac and his team mates to set the bar high and create surprises with passion and team spirit.
Despite the inland status!
