WS Ranking 37

Team:EWII Racing
Nicolai and his crew are part of a new breed of professional sailor from the Royal Danish Yacht Club, Denmark.  Sehested made his debut at the Argo Group Gold Cup in 2012 competing with the best teams in match racing.  He fronts an experienced crew of professional and skilled sailors where they have won many Grade 2 match racing events in both Europe and the United States in 2013.  He had a spectacular campaign that year which placed him into the top ten of the ISAF rankings until 2014.  Sehested then lead his team into the first three stages of the 2014 season, however had to discontinue his ambitions on the Tour after receiving a call to join Team Vestas Wind in the 2014/15 Volvo Race campaign.

Joining back the Tour in 2015 as a Tour Card Skipper, Sehested took victory in Poland from defending event winner Ian Williams and claimed his first ever event title on the WMRT.  Sehested will return again as a Tour Card skipper on the 2017 Match Racing Tour and will be looking to better his 2nd place Congressional Cup finish in 2016.
