Raphael Hussl – Boat Captain
Raphael, born in 1996 in Hall in Tyrol, has been sailing since the age of seven. He gathered national as well as international racing experience – including multiple participations in the European and world championships – in different dinghy classes (Optimist, 420, 49-FX and 49er). He was a member of the Austrian youth national team. In 2017, he took part in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup on the Bermuda Islands. Since then, his aim has been to take part in offshore races. Raphael is active in boatbuilding at big sailing events and works as a trainer, coach and logistician.
“This project gives me the unique opportunity of sailing around the world in big boats.”
