Oliver Heer is a successful Swiss sailor from Zurich. After graduating with a business degree, he followed his dream to become a professional sailor.
Over the last decade, Ollie has established himself as a winning skipper and a key support lead in some of the most high profile offshore sailing campaigns.
Our IMOCA 60, designed by Farr Yacht Design in 2007, has seen a host of skippers at the helm, including Jean Le Cam, Fabrice Amedeo and Romain Attanasio. It’s non-foiling and solid, so is the perfect boat for Ollie’s first race in the Vendée Globe.
Behind every good sailor is an amazing team who drive the success of the campaign. Our team is made up of an amazing group of people who support Ollie in his endeavour to sail the 2024 Vendée Globe and beyond.
Skipper & CEO and Chairman of the Board
Ollie leads the campaign and drives its success. He considers himself very fortunate to be surrounded by peers who fully support his endeavour and want to be involved in the Project Vendée Globe.
Theresa is responsible for strategy, logistics, marketing, communications, PR and events. As we start to secure sponsors, she will predominantly hold the relations and ensure the sponsorship commitments are delivered.
Partnerships, Business Development and Sustainability
Working alongside Ollie and the team, Luca is responsible for securing much needed partners and sponsors, as well as sustainability initiatives and outreach partners, promoting our slogan #RACEFORCHANGE.
