Las Catrinas

Racing with the Spirits

GREATER THAN DEATH

In honour of the late Eric Mergenthaler, Finn World Champion, the mexican team comes to the Gold Cup as Las Catrinas. A new team led by olympic Laser sailor Yanic Gentry, followed by Mexico’s best talent in sailing, and attending the SSL Gold Cup to show their worth altogether on an international stage. Yanic has become the bridge between Mexico’s veterans and the up and coming talent, everyone joining under the same motivation, showing the world Mexico’s potencial

Being the first nation to win the Round The World Race, Team Mexico is surely one not to be underestimated. In the past years Mexico has been showing the world a taste of its potential, winning a J70 World Championship, having a team in the Extreme Sailing Series and a possible entry for the next Ocean Race is just a hint of what is to come.

THE CAPTAIN

YANIC GENTRY

Multiple times National Laser Champion and Mexico’s representative in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Yanic is the man leading Las Catrinas. Not only a great sailor but a civil engineer finishing a masters in naval engineering, he is a highly capable leader ready to take on the challenge of bringing Mexico to the top of the leaderboard.

THE CAPTAIN

THE LEADERS

TANIA ELIAS CALLES

One of Mexico’s best athletes and definitely the best female sailor in the history of her country, Tania Elias Calles is joining the team. The Laser Radial Champion, ranked #1 in the world in 2008, is here with her expertise on tactics and preparation. 

YON BELAUSTEGUIGOITIA & ELIANE FIERRO

Yon & Eliane are an iconic couple in the sailing community in Mexico, both holding an Atlantic Crossing Record in the Volvo 65 Viva Mexico with their three sons. Eliane representing Mexico in the 470 class at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games and a 7th in a Women Laser World Championship, is a great resource bringing her mastery of coaching and team development. Yon, Mexico’s top sail designer with his own brand B17 sails, the silver medalist in a 470 North American Championship and multiple times National Champion is here to take the team to the next level. 

JORGE MURRIETA 

A one design specialist and a very smart competitor, Jorge Murrieta joins Las Catrinas bringing with him a keen eye for speed. The Snipe Panamerican medalist and J24 North American Champion is someone perfect to set the team on the right track. 

 

THE LEADERS THE LEADERS

THE YOUTH FACTOR

Team Mexico has its eyes on 25 year old Juan Ignacio Perez, the Mexican olympic representative in the Finn class for Tokyo 2020ne. His excellent physical form and experience in the Finn will definitely come in handy on the SSL47’s. Ander Belausteguigoitia is another rising sailing star that could represent big gains for Las Catrinas, competing in the difficult 49er class and a bronze in the competitive J70 Northamerican Championship is definitely a good asset for the team.
