Hi. I am Daniel and at just 15 years of age, I will have the honour and privilege to be representing Australia at the upcoming Laser 4.7 Youth World Championships over in Poland in July. Being able to compete against the best youth sailors in the world at this event will be an enormous and valuable experience for me, not to mention the opportunity it will give me to further refine my technical skills and test myself on the world stage.
Sailing is my passion and I have worked extremely hard over the past 2 seasons to reach this point. I train regularly throughout the week and race on weekends at Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, Georges River Sailing Club and Double Bay Sailing Club. I also compete at several state and national based regattas, and some recent performances this season in the Laser 4.7 class I am proud of include a 1st place at the NSW Laser Metropolitan Championships, 3rd at the NSW Youth Championships, and a 4th at the Australian Youth Championships.
Ofcourse, embarking on a journey to the World Championships comes at a significant cost with airfares, accommodation, coaching fees, boat charter, equipment and team uniform being just some of the considerations. So any donations that can generously be put forward (through the Australian Sports Foundation), to support my journey to Poland will be very much appreciated and will go a long way to helping me achieve my goals. All donations made are fully tax deductible.
Thanking you for your support!
