About

Brazil’s double Olympian Eduardo de Souza Ramos returns to the 52 SUPER SERIES after a three year break with an all-Brazilian crew which has five-time Olympic medallist Robert Scheidt as tactician.

De Souza Ramos last raced with the 52 SUPER SERIES in 2014, finishing fourth overall. Their project is run by Volvo Ocean Race ace and 2008 49er Olympian, Andre “Bochecha” Fonseca and includes a wide cross section of young talent, including Marco Grael, as well as older, more experienced sailors from the Olympic and offshore arenas. De Souza Ramos is looking to the long term with this project, realising it is a big ask to return to the top ranks of the circuit but is a very strong competitor who knows what it takes to win. He also wishes the programme to be a flagship for Brazilian big boat talent, facilitating the development of up and coming youngsters.
