Xavier Rohart, video interview one year after winning the first SSL City Grand Slam

Throw back to one year ago in Hamburg, GER.

It is the end of day one of the first SSL City Grand Slam. So many races in one day with the heats system due to so many teams eager to race in such a small beautiful lake.

It would need four more days of champagne sailing (or the equivalent in German) to determine the winners of this incredibly hard fought event, in a welcoming warm city with a big heart, with super cool people and an amazing Yacht Club - the Norddeustcher Regatta Verein - that brilliantly played our home for a whole week.


Xavier Rohart and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot are the winners of the first SSL City Grand Slam, and we met up with Xavier Rohart at the French Championship in Annecy on the past weekend.
