A brief interview with Olivier Cohen from France

A brief interview with Olivier Cohen from France

While I have had no previous contact with Olivier, it is obvious to me that radio sailing has been a big part of his life for some time now. Olivier is a strong international competitor including 3rd at the recent 2014 Euros and he is a past FRA National Champion three times: 2010, 2012, and 2013. You don’t sail at that high level without a long-term commitment in this class. I know he gives back by serving as IOMICA VCEvents and he is a balanced voice on the IOM forums.

A Brief Interview with Huub and Hanneke Gillissen

A Brief Interview with Huub and Hanneke Gillissen

I became aware of Huub from a thoughtful post he made on the 2011 Worlds website, his first Worlds. Already I had been admiring Hanneke’s excellent radio sailing images. Since then they have traveled to a number of radio sailing World, European, and National Championships in UK, GER, FRA, MLT, ISR, and even down under in AUS. I know this because I read the race results and follow Hanneke’s photo journal on the web – just search “Hanneke Gillissen Pont photos”. And yes, I’m envious of how they travel and sail to so many major regattas so regularly.
