Algarve team with goal TOKYO 2021

TOKYO 2021 Olympic Games

We are a team made up of two brothers Gonçalo Pires and Rodolfo Pires. We have thus come to raise money for the internships and championships that we are going to participate in.

Due to the pandemic (COVID-19) the championships were all postponed / canceled. We were in Palma de Mallorca, Spain to participate in the World Championship, the day before we started we arrived from the sea, after an intensive training and faced with the cancellation of the race.

So far we continue to make every effort to endure this dream, we have found some jobs to pay for training, we sell goods for the same purpose, but when you have a dream we go to the end! We continue to train every week to be ready for the tests. To be successful we need € 8000, this amount will be used to cover parts of the tests, training and internships with a trainer. Our concept is to reach 8000 people, we want to feel the union of the Portuguese, if you can't support share it because it will be helping, help us to be strong for the European qualification to reach Tokyo.

Helmsman: Gonçalo Pires

Bow: Rodolfo Pires

Coach: Pedro Ambrósio

Club: Yacht Club Marina de Portimão

In material terms, what do we have? New complete boat prepared for the tests; Sets of new candles prepared for the tests; Complete training boat and complete sails.

Support: Portimão City Council Silves City Council Portuguese Wave Sailing Federation - Boats, Engines and Nautical Accessories, Lda. Portimão Marina CIMAV Vilamoura NorthSails Cascais
