Biography

After I started to race dinghies on my home lake of Murten, Switzerland, I photographed my friends sailing and racing. Then the Swiss Yachting magazine showcased my photographs in the magazine and the editor sent me to my first of many Kiel Weeks in 1971. The 1972 Olympic Games, with the yachting part being held in Kiel, started my official career as a yachting photographer and journalist. I covered 12 Olympic Games since and all America's Cup events from 1977 to 2017. Plus multiple World Championships and long distance races from the 1985/1986 Whitbread to the 2000/2001 and 2005/2006 Volvo Round the World Races to the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Races starting in the year 2000. And in 2022 I am still enthusiastically covering the New York Yacht Club events and the Rolex Big Boat Series in San Francisco.
