WICKED Sailing team

WICKED Sailing team

Join the crew of Wicked (MUMM 36 modified) for the season 2019-20. We have been sailing together for a year and have started winning races. 

The boat has been completely refit, new sails and electronics. She is a beauty. We sail a variety of coastal races in Hong Kong, usually 2 events per month. The highlight is the Four Peak Race, an amazing mixed sport regatta, this year in January 2020.

We have brought together a really fun group of people and are looking for more. The more experience the better, but all levels are welcome.

The boat is wonderful, technical and fast. We are looking for all positions.

25 year old exchange student at Hong Kong Baptist University looking for crew positions during my stay in HK. I am originally from Finland but doing my graduate studies in Sweden. I speak english, finnish, swedish and can quickly pick up new sailing terminology in foreign languages. 

My sailing background consists of Optimist, Laser (4.7 and Radial), 49er, ORCi, classic meter-boats, Dragon and Soling. Our team's latest achievement is winning the Soling European Championships 2019 at Lake Garda (results). The previous years I have worked a lot on the foredeck as bowman but can handle other positions. As a sailor I appreciate effective communication onboard and progression as a team keeping a fun attitude whilst aiming for the top podium. Sailing referrals can be provided if necessary. 

After my studies I am aiming to become a professional, so all big boat owners are also of interest.
