Best of luck to Max!

Max Zetterström in 6A has qualified to compete with the Swedish national team in optimist sailing. He will be representing Sweden in the Nordic Championship which takes place in Båstad, Sweden on August 1st-4th. Max has been competing in sailing since he was 7 years old, but he has been sailing almost since he was born. He practices sailing all year around, even during the winter. He has participated in regattas both in Sweden and abroad.

Good luck Max and to the rest of the Swedish sailing team!!
