As 2016 Junior World Champion and 2020 German Champion in the Finn Dinghy, Phillip Kasüske was considered one of Germany’s hopeful Olympic talents. But after the Corona Shutdown, the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics and the elimination of the Finn Dinghy for the Olympic future, the 28-year-old Berliner has realigned his focus.

The powerhouse focused entirely on sailing, was part of the winning team in The Ocean Race Europe. Kasüske is characterized by a special combination of sensitivity and power. On board the IMOCA, the passionate cyclist not only brings the necessary horsepower to the grinder. The youngest member of the sailing team can also take the helm when it counts thanks to his experience in Olympic sailing.
