Extreme Sailing Series - Team Extreme latest entry

'Roland Gaebler, Skipper of Team Extreme - Extreme Sailing Series'    Extreme 40s©
Extreme Sailing Series welcomes the latest team to join the 2011 global circuit, taking the tally up to 11 world class teams.

‘Team Extreme’ will be skippered by experienced Olympic multihull sailor Roland Gaebler: 'Together with our team we are proud to be part of this Series and we cannot wait to see the other legendary teams show up. We are very proud to sail with such great sailors'.


Using the platform of the Dusseldorf Boat Show, the world’s largest yacht and watersports trade fair, Gaebler made his announcement alongside Extreme Sailing Series ‘Official Clothing Supplier’ Marinepool, who this year celebrate their 20th anniversary.

One of the world’s most accomplished multihull sailors and International Tornado class president, Roland Gaebler is not new to the challenges of Extreme 40 racing. In 2009 he skippered the German Extreme 40 ‘Team Wirsol’ at the Kiel event and in 2010 Gaebler led the Hungarian team, Team Nokia Hungary.

Bruno Dubois (CAN) and Sebbe Godefroid (BEL) complete the core crew and the three have an impressive collective CV with 9 Olympic Games, 2 Olympic medals, 7 World Championship titles, 3 America’s Cups and 2 world sailing records between them. There will be no shortage of experience within Team Extreme! The fourth and final crewmember will come from each of the host nations, providing an opportunity for that country to showcase their best national or local sailing talent.

Gaebler’s team have not yet sailed an Extreme 40 together despite all having been involved in the circuit since its inception in 2007: 'We’re starting from the beginning with this project so we don’t have expectations on the results initially,' said Gaebler. 'We will give it our best and see what happens, and we will have a lot of fun with this great boat. We love to sail and ‘fly’! We will sail with great passion and the results will, hopefully, reflect this. We are planning an intensive training session in Oman to build up and synchronize our team. With Bruno Dubois and Sebbe Godefroid I have great sailors at my side and some great events with amazing boats are waiting for us'.

Groupe Edmond De Rothschild have also recently announced their chosen skipper for 2011. Pierre Pennec, tactician for the 2010 and 2009 series will this year be taking the helm and hoping to improve on last years second place in the series.
