Grinder Lucas Trittel joined Spain SailGP Team ahead of Season 2, being one of four new recruits for the campaign. He joins his brother, wing trimmer Florian, in the Spain team.
Born in 1992, Trittel is passionate about elite sports and he's always strived to become a professional athlete. He was born into a family of sailors and, at the age of seven, together with his brother Flo, started sailing an Optimist.
After continuing to develop his skills, and also grow in height and weight, Trittel made the leap first to Laser 4.7 and then to the 29er class, after which he began his university studies in Physiotherapy.
Trittel is always looking for a balance between physical and mental health. Very conscientious about his diet, he is fond of keeping fit and is also a keen windsurfer. He is proud to share with Flo, his brother, the experience of joining SailGP.
His favorite quote: "If you get involved with something, do it 100 per cent or leave it".
