Les navigateurs suisses de Realteam se sont envolés pour la Chine, à Qingdao, où se déroulera dès demain le troisième acte des Extreme Sailing Series. Quatrième au classement général provisoire, Realteam compte confirmer ses excellents résultats du début de saison ce week-end.

Qingdao, Chine, le 30 avril 2014 - L’enceinte des Jeux Olympiques 2008 accueille dès demain et jusqu’au 4 mai la troisième manche des Extreme Sailing Series, le championnat international réunissant les meilleurs navigateurs du monde sur les multicoques Extreme 40. Le drapeau Suisse sera fièrement arboré sur le catamaran Realteam by Realstone tandis qu’il évoluera sous les anneaux olympiques du prestigieux stade nautique : quatrième au classement général après les deux premières compétitions, l’équipe romande signe un début de saison remarquable face à l’élite mondiale.

« Nous voulons continuer sur cette bonne lancée », explique Thierry Wasem, numéro 1 à Qingdao. « L’objectif est de rester le plus proche possible du podium, ou de monter dessus ! » Outsiders avant le début de saison, les navigateurs suisses ont montré leur potentiel à Singapour et à Oman, ce qui ne change pas l’état d’esprit de l’équipe : « Nous ne nous mettons pas de pression, mais travaillons dur. Nous nous sommes entraînés en Décision 35 sur le Léman depuis Oman, l’équipe est au top ! »

Septièmes l’an dernier sur ce même plan d’eau, les navigateurs Realteam n’appréhendent pas de se retrouver face à onze équipes - l’équipe locale Team Extreme Qingdao rejoint le circuit pour l’occasion - sur un terrain de jeu très étroit : « Il n’y aura pas beaucoup de place c’est certain, mais nous avons déjà navigué ici. C’est un vrai plus ! »

Les résultats seront en ligne après chaque régate sur : www.extremesailingseries.com
