Most Memorable Competition Experience: 

Wining the youth u20 event in Pozo back in 2018 was a super motivating moment for me, as the level was very high even in the youth fleet. This gave me the desire to go for more and achieve bigger goals.

Competition experience you would most like to forget:

Not so much that comes to my mind, but maybe I would say a heat in Sylt where it was dead on shore and I broke the string of my extension in the middle of the heat and I didn’t manage to do anything on the water and came back out so frustrated... 

Most Memorable Out of competition experiences (on the water):    

For me sailing in Saint Leu, in reunion Island on a Perfect peeling pointbreak with only 4 people out and in such a magic scenario.

Out of competition experience you would most like to forget (on the water)    

When I injured my knee.
