Profile

Starboat world champion Robert Stanjek, born in 1981, is one of Germany’s most successful sailors.

He has won numerous national and international titles and landed sixth place at the 2012 Olympic Games. The young skipper first gained recognition when he won the Fastnet Race in 2013. One year later, Stanjek completed his training for the 2014/15 Volvo Ocean Race with the Dutch “Team Brunel”. Shortly thereafter, German sailing legend Jochen Schümann nominated Stanjek as helmsman of the 30-meter-long maxi yacht “Esimit Europa 2”. In 2015, Stanjek won the Fastnet Race for the second time at the helm of the Mini-Maxi “Momo”.
