D35 & GC32 trimmer

19 January 1973

Nils Frei was schooled on the Swiss lakes that he grew up around and on which his sailing career as a trimmer began to take shape from an early age. A six-time Swiss champion in the dinghy class, Nils joined the Alinghi team in 2001 and helped it to secure the Louis Vuitton Cup en route to the 31st America’s Cup. Since that auspicious start, Nils has been with Alinghi on its many adventures in the D35 and the Extreme Sailing Series, playing a key role in securing many titles along the way.
