Oliver Heer is a passionate Swiss German offshore sailor who has competed since childhood. After the untimely death of his father in 2014, Ollie decided that a corporate career wasn’t for him, and he needed to “follow his dreams”. In 2018, he joined Alex Thomson on the IMOCA, HUGO BOSS, as Boat Captain. Together the pair sailed over 50,000 miles and in 2021, Alex and Ollie co-skippered the Rolex Fastnet Race, Ollie’s debut into the IMOCA Globe Series. Competing in the Vendée Globe has been Ollie’s ambition since he was small.
