Become a supporter!

Everyone can help me get closer to the starting line!


The journey that leads to the starting line of the Mini Transat takes more than two years.


The intense preparation is about the improvement of sailing skills, meteorology, classical navigation as well as participating in Qualifier-Races and working on physical and psychological constitution.


As a 21-year-old student, it is not possible to pay logistics or the sailing boat itself without any financial aid. Therefore, I am looking for supporters and sponsors in order to reach the starting line of the Mini Transat in autumn 2017.


Have a look here who already supports my project.


How one can support me:


1) Crowdfunding with "Monaco Funding": At you can support me with any amount you wish and get personal givebacks.


2) directly via my project account:
