At a tender age, his family relocated to Menorca, a Mediterranean island in Spain, where his passion for sailing blossomed. He honed his skills in various sailing classes and, at the age of 15, he moved to Mallorca to train diligently at the advanced sailing center. During this time, he secured numerous national titles and achieved podium finishes in world and European championships, competing in the under-19 category.
His journey to success gained momentum in 2017 when he transitioned from the Laser class to the larger Finn class. His remarkable talent led him to clinch a world and European title in the under-23 category, accompanied by two national titles and three youth world championships. Additionally, he had the opportunity to represent Spain alongside his Spain SailGP teammates in the Youth America’s Cup held in Bermuda during the same year.
