Hey there! Pierre Casiraghi just recently started his Instagram account. He is not only the nephew to Prince Albert II of Monaco. More important: He’s a talented young sailor who already took part at the “Rolex Sydney Hobert Yacht Race” and helmed the “Musandam Oman Sail” (Just like I did at the Kieler Woche one year earlier – not at the race though).

In 2000, I watched the Louis Vuitton Cup – the challenger selection series for the America’s Cup – live in New Zealand. I was instantly hooked. The next Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series takes place in New York, May 7-8, 2016. So stay tuned!
