Danish champ at Lasers

Danish world champ and Laser sailing Olympic champion Anne-Marie Rindom turned the Queensland Laser River Titles at Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club into a special event earlier this month.

Gusty conditions made it difficult for our local junior girls in their first competition, but they fared well, as did Max Marian, finishing second in his class.

The club was honoured to have Anne-Marie Rindom, the current women’s Olympic Laser champion, three-times World Champion, 2019 World Sailor of the Year and the female member of Denmark’s Sail GP team attend.

She gave the competing juniors competing a helpful chat on what it takes to be world number one and answered questions before the racing started.

She also presented the trophies.

All competitors were happy she did not join the race!

Anne-Marie left Noosa to head straight to the next Sail GP event in Dubai, so the club was extremely grateful to her for finding the time to encourage young sailors.
