In the next few weeks we'll present you new portraits of the Magic Marine family, sailor's dilemmas and the latest updates about our qualified sailors. We will also share their favorite Magic Marine items with you! And even though all qualifying options for the members of the Magic Marine family are already behind us, there still are a few milestone events on the agenda before summer starts...
Camille Lecointre and Aloïse Retornaz from France, just finished the Europeans 470 in Vilamoura - Portugal, at the top of the leaderboard! After the event they drove straight to Santander in Spain for their last training camp with the European squad. They are training together with athletes from Poland, Spain, the Netherlands, Israel, Sweden and Portugal. After this they will hit the road for Marseille and the West coast of France to do some final training sessions with their Polish partners and the French youth team.
In January 2018 Camille and Aloïse decided to team up. The girls knew each other already for a while as they were always training in the same training center in Brest. After Camille won a Bronze medal in Rio de Janeiro during the Olympic Games in 2016, she gave birth to a little boy. During this period Aloïse was sailing in the 470 and won two junior World Championships.
Thanks to coach Gildas Philippe who knew the two girls really well and knew where to work on, they climbed into the top 5 of the world quite fast! After the World Championship in Aarhus 2019, where they finished 3rd, the podium spots kept on coming. They claimed gold at the Test Event in Enoshima and now they also took the first place at the Europeans 470.
