call it a comeback

A little local knowledge for ya…

After wining the Italian championship (he won 6 of 7 races), Robert Schedit did an impressive campaign last week in the Brazilian Championships. Racing against Bruno Fontes (#3 ISAF Laser STD rank and 2nd @ 2012 OCR Miami) and Matheus Dellagnelo  (2011 Sunfish World Champion and Gold in 2011 Pan American Games Sunfish Class) in the brezee Guaíba River in southern Brazil, Robert showed no mercy and did 5 bullets and 3 second place in 8 races, finishing the series with 9 points and claiming the 11th National title of his career.

How can a 39 year old sailor, after almost 7 years out of the class, race and win, in a solid way, a week long championship against a much younger sailor just fresh out of a brilliant Olympic campaign and among the top 3 in the world?? The fight for the Brazilian spot of the 2016 Olympics will be memorable! – Anarchist Alceu.
