Now he moves onto pastures new. Nico is a fully qualified coach and is working with the French 49er crews through to London 2012.
We are of course sorry to see him ago and wish him well and much success in what ever he chooses to do in the future.
However, the RS:X Windsurfing Men's Fleet now need to elect a new representative.
Just to remind you, the vote should be made at a meeting of male athletes racing at the 2009 RS:X Windsurfing World Championships. The day, date and time will be posted on the official notice board at the venue and will also be on the event website.
If you wish to put your name forward as a candidate, please contact Rory Ramsden at rory.ramsden @ btopenworld.com
