And this year was highlighted by his 8th time win of the sailor with the Greatest Team Spirit Award!
Guilherme’s enthusiasm for the sea began very early, the boat trips in which his paternal grandfather (A Navy Officer) took him, fed his love for boats and for the sea. Guilherme started sailing when he was only 8 years old and since then his dedication has resulted in excellent classifications and podium awards.
“I’ve already achieved a lot of good results, but the best one was in the International Tournament of Carnival in 2017 (Vilamoura), where I came in 2nd place” he tells us with pride.
But Guilherme is not sailing alone, Rafael Rodrigues, who also started sailing 8 years ago, since the first time he set foot on a sailboat, joins him. Rafael confessed to us, “the trick to be a good sailor is not a simple one, it’s a complex recipe, in which the ingredients are based on concentration, the ability to communicate, the ability to observe, a solid determination and a constant desire to learn and evolve. And obviously the eagerness to be the best”.
With 15 podium prizes, including 2 National Titles, it is clear that this is, without a doubt, the recipe for success!
“For me, the best thing is to represent Portugal in International championships; it’s always great to represent my country”, says Guilherme.
Kuboo is proud to be with Guilherme and Rafael in these moments of personal fulfilment and pride for Portugal! To try to help them in achieving the best they can be, and to grow with them.
