ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO YOUNG SAILORS AIMING FOR THE TOP LEVEL
Just go hard at it. It doesn’t matter what you do but if you work hard it will be good.
My best advice for young sailors that are dreaming to be the best in sailing would be, firstly it has to be fun so choose a boat where there is a good class environment and sailors who push each other every day.
The most important thing do is just work hard. You need to be able to push yourself mentally and when you think it is tough you just need to work even harder.
WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING IF YOU WEREN’T SAILING?
I am currently studying Architecture, so most likely something in that field. I really like drawing and really looking forward to seeing what architecture has in store for me.
I think I would still be into sport. I had been doing a lot of football when I was young but also badminton, it is a big sport in Denmark. So probably competing in one of those sports if I wasn’t sailing.
