Youngest Crewmember, Copa Del Rey
The youngest crewmember in the Copa Del Rey 2018 regatta in Palma is a true Elvstrøm Sails ambassador! 8-year-old Milo from Denmark. Milo was a “floater” on a Spanish X-35, and he had a great week with lots of racing in the bay of Palma.
Milo was helmsman from the harbor to the race area, and in between the races.
To participate in a regatta like Copa Del Rey you need an ID within “Sailing World” and that goes for Milo as well, who was checked in and registered with his 26 kg.
As the smallest crewmember, Milo had another important task; cleaning the rig. The proud young sailor is quite experienced despite his young age, having participated twice in Palby Fyn Cup in Denmark in an X-35. Look out for him on the race courses in the future :-)
