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 both a winning skipper and a key support lead in some of the most high profile offshore sailing campaigns.
Having the world's oceans as his playground, Ollie is used to pushing it resentlessly to the limit, in the harshest of environments. Performing on the edge for extended periods of time, his experience, determination and mental strength enables him to operate outside his comfort zone.
Ollie recently announced his ambition to be at the start line of the Vendée Globe Race 2024, a single handed, non stop race around the world. It is considered one of the toughest sailing challenges in the world with only 114 finishers in its 30 year history.
