[Source: Team Trifork] Since 2008 when Joachim Aschenbrenner decided to try his luck with Match Racing instead of the optimist dinghy, he has only climbed the ladder and is now ranked nr. 23 on the World Rankings. Through the last season the team has proven their potential with among others, 2nd place at the European Youth Championship and a 5th place at the “real” European Championship.
This potential has convinced the IT-company Trifork from Århus to agree on a sponsoring contract with the team for the next year. Joachim Aschenbrenner and Team Trifork have hereby established a solid economical foundation for the forthcoming season during which the team will really show their colours on the international stage.
“Our goal for the upcoming season is to be within top 20 at the end of 2012. With the economic support from Trifork we can concentrate 100% upon improving our performance without having to worry about the finances for our participating in this year’s regattas” tells Joachim Aschenbrenner.
A big name in Danish sailing
By sponsoring Joachim Aschenbrenner, Trifork expand their portfolio of sailing teams in Denmark and is now represented in both Extreme Sailing Series and in the top of international Match Racing.
“It is incredible to feel such trust and support by one of the biggest operators within Danish sailing. So in addition to the finances, the support from Trifork gives a boost to our confidence, which we can bring with us to the upcoming season,” states Joachim Aschenbrenner.
The Goal is World Match Racing Tour
With the consistent progress on the World Rankings, Team Trifork begins to see an end to the long way towards their biggest goal – World Match Racing Tour card.
“We have set up a very ambitious goal of being a part of the professional World Tour by 2014 and with our support from Trifork I am convinced that we will reach our goal,” says Joachim Aschenbrenner.
CEO Jørn Larsen backs this up with the comment, “With his 18 years of age Joachim is a unique talent who at the same time has a competent team behind him. With the plan they have presented for me I am convinced that Team Trifork will be a part of the World Match Racing Tour in 2014 and maybe already in 2013 if everything goes well.”
