Oliver started sailing at an early age. All his youth he spent sailing on various dinghies, from Optimists to 49er, and managed to compete internationally on a high level. A couple of years ago he moved from Switzerland to England to pursue a professional career in sailing and found his passion in offshore racing. The past years he spent competing in some of the toughest offshore events, often finishing on the podium and continuing to improve his skills. For the AAR Oliver is on board Pata Negra as Boat Captain, making sure that the boat is in perfect condition ahead of the race and able to perform at a 100% all the way from Bermuda to Hamburg. His motto: Drive it like you stole it!
