About me




Some quick facts Anders Dahlsjö:
Born 1972, married to Malin with two daughters. Started sailing opti as 7 years old and stoped sailing dinghy as 15 years old because swimming took all time but windsurfed and cruised during summers. Educated as engineer and started military service 1993.
In 1994 I cruised the Atlantic, Madeira, Canarias and Azores with Lady Godiva, the family boat. From 1995 my racing career started as you can read from my sailing merits, below.
Professional sailor between 2001 to 2009 with Victory challenge and Ericsson Racing team as highs.
What I usually say I´m most famous for is this clip from VOR 08/09.
Today racing is mostly with my own boats, Lady Godiva or our Formula 18 catamaran, But I enjoy racing in teams with ambitions. Search Magazine did a article about me a couple of years ago, it can be found on this link: https://www.searchmagazine.se/artiklar/anders-dahlsj%C3%96_11347.htm
