Team Severne welcome 27 times World Champion Karin Jaggi to their international windsurf team.
Having already snapped up the likes of Bjorn Dunkerbeck and Danny Bruch over the winter transfer period, Severne have well and truly laid their cards on the table with the signing of Swiss sailor, Karin Jaggi.
Now with three new potential World Champions on their team joining an already solid line-up, it would appear that the Perth based sail brand are on the hunt for World Title at the end of 2009, be it in slalom, wave or both.
With Dunkerbeck’s dominance of the final two slalom stops in 2008 (Alacati and Sylt), Bruch’s awe inspiring wave skills and Jaggi’s unnerved consistency, only a fool would bet against them not securing one, if not more titles.
Here’s the word from Severne and Karin Jaggi:
“With many years of experience in the windsurfing industry, Swiss born Karin Jaggi will be a true asset to the Severne team. Her plans for the up-coming 2009 season are to defend her Slalom World title, compete in as many PWA Wave events as possible and, if her schedule allows, defend her current Speed Sailing World Record of 41.25 knots.”
"I am super happy to be on Severne Sails. I plan to spend lots of time in Western Australia and this will allow me to be very close to testing and development of the sails. At the same time I can tune them in some of the worlds best sailing locations. Now I have everything in one spot and it is really only up to me to make the best of it. Most of the other Severne Team members spend the whole summer in Western Australia and this is another big plus for me - it's a lot more fun and so much easier to figure things out together. I've known Ben for 10 years and followed the progression of Severne Sails since the beginning. I am really looking forward to be on his sail designs!"
Karin Jaggi is sponsored by F2 boards and Severne sails.
