In front of all 200 school children we presented our project TOPtoTOP and were amazed about their relation to sport and the environment.

Matteo Micheli joined us for presentations at the SuisseNautik boat show and arrived with a Genaker for Pachamama!

While one of us was busy at the boat show, the other half went skiing, ice-skating, sledging or building a snow man with our kids. In Lenk was also the Synchro Ski World Cup!
Matthias Kurt from the Lenker mountain railways organized us a public presentation and sponosred us ski tickets. Result: 3 year old Salina skis in all terains like a rocket and it is hard to keep up with her and 2 year old Andri skis already alone in easy slopes.

Thanks to our parents, who went skiing with our kids. We both were able to work together with Marc Zollinger on the book and Dario also as a mountain guide.

On the last weekend we climbed together with the TOPtoTOP board over the glacier to the Summit of Mount Pizol. Sabine climed to the mixed top already in the 5th month of her pregnancy.
Today is Sabine’s birthday and tomorrow we are on the way to Pachamama.
… and finally we were able to test our kite material for Antarctica thanks to Dominik and Sylke.
Next weekend we are back at the Gold Coast City Marina in Brisbane to paint the deck of Pachamama and prepare for the SGS venue at the 18th of March.
