MEET THE MEMBERS OF THE BELGIAN SSL
With several Olympic medalists, Belgium has put itself on the map of the sailing world. Let’s think about the remarkable achievements of Sebbe Godefroid in 1996 and Emma Plasschaert in the latest Olympics. Belgium has three sailing federations which are closely following the latest news and competitions: the Royal Belgian Sailing Federation, Wind-en Watersport Vlaanderen and the Fédération Francophone du Yachting Belge.
In this supportive environment the Belgian SSL team was carefully selected. The Belgian team is made of a unique combination of professional sailors and new young talents. For many members of our team, the SSL Gold Cup is the ideal opportunity to experience an inter national regatta with likeminded experienced sailors.
During the Qualifying Series in May, Belgium will be represented by Sebbe Godefroid as Captain of the team, Bram Van Der Biest, Pieter Tack, Emma Plasschaert, Sophie Faguet, Tom Pelsmaekers, Toon Van Caneghem, Yannick Lefebvre, and Thomas De Somer. The members of the Belgian team are already training hard to gain a place in the Final Series.
