Awesome victories and chastening defeats: Sailing professional Dominik Neidhart has experienced both. Three times he participated in the America's Cup - the most prestigious and challenging sailing competition of the world. In New Zealand his team Alinghi celebrated an unexpected and passionate victory - as outside broker. The further Swissman handball professional player and ex-medicine student was responsible for the role of the "grinder" on the Alinghi - as fast as possible he had to put the sail by cranking into the right direction. Without clear communication, discipline and strength not possible. On board you have to evidence the ability to work in a team, to get along with people from different cultures on a very tight space and to lean on each other.
