Built around the crew which won the D35 championship and the Bol d’Or in 2012, the Realteam is made up of young talent from the Geneva Regatta Training Centre. The team aims to offer a true stepping stone for budding sailors in Switzerland, by capitalising on existing assets and opening up new horizons and challenges.
In 2014, Realteam became an internationally recognized team after its finished third overall in the Extreme Sailing Series. Led by skipper Jérôme Clerc, the team also competes in the D35 class and in the Flying Phanton class and made its debut on the GC32 Racing Tour last season.
