Mirabaud is proud to be the main sponsor of Anaëlle Pattusch, Switzerland's youngest, single-handed, ocean racing yachtswoman.
Supported by Swiss sailors Justine Mettraux, Alan Roura, Valentin Gautier and Simon Koster, the young sportswoman is part of the new generation of Swiss ocean sailors.
At only 20 years old, Anaëlle Pattusch is preparing for the Mini Transat 2023, a 4,050 nautical miles (7,500 kilometers) single-handed ocean race between Les Sables d'Olonne and Saint-François in Guadeloupe. This introductory race is one of the essential stages in the career of high-level sportsmen and women who want to become professionals in ocean racing. The crossing is carried out solo on the smallest “Mini” racing boats (6.50 meters), with no assistance or means of communication with land (no satellite weather routing, computer or telephone).
As the project's "Main Partner", Mirabaud is pleased to support a young and talented sailor at the beginning of her sporting career. Women are still a rare breed in this discipline (less than 10%) and we want to use this partnership to encourage female careers. We look forward to following her journey over the next two years until the Mini Transat in 2023.
Since 2022, Daniela has been a Mirabaud Ambassador. Born in San Francisco in the 2000s, Daniela became Formula Kite world champion at the age of 15. This young American athlete quickly established herself as a leader in the world of international Kite Foil. Today, with 6 world titles, 2 "US Rolex Yachtswoman of the year" awards and selections to the US SailGP Team and the US Olympic Sailing Team, she has set her sights on winning a gold medal at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
The Group is very proud to help her realise her dream of an Olympic medal.
