Marie Rønningen &

Helene Næss

We are Helene and Marie, from Nøtterøy island, Norway. We teamed up early 2013 and have been sailing together since.

As a team, we bring out the best in each other. To be good at sailing you need to process as much information as possible and make quick decisions based on what you have. We like to think of ourselves as “all-round” sailors, meaning we do well in all types of conditions. Helene and Marie compete in the high performance 49er FX.

Nicholas Fadler Martinsen & Martine Steller Mortensen

When the Nacra 17 back in 2012 was the new multi-hull for the Olympics, Nicholas and Martine fell immediately in love with this discipline, and dared to try this adventure completely on their own.

Now, with already one campaign 'under the belt' and the boat upgraded to a full foiling monster machine, the couple from Moss is found more on the boat than in their new apartment.
