Jesper Nielsen is not "just" a clever sail designer. He is also a great sailor and just proved that to the full by beating world champion Søren Duloun Andreasen.

Jesper started his Contender career back in 2010 and has since then worked his way up the ladder. Being ranked as no. 3 twice at the European Championship and as no. 9 at the World Championship in 2013.

This years result at Kieler Woche is a very good starting point for the next race; World Championship in July in Medemblik in Holland. At Elvstrøm Sails we keep our fingers crossed and for now we´re quite proud! Way to go, Jesper!
