About the project

For the last 3 years, I have been sailing with my crew Annie Wilmot in the Olympic Pathway 29er class dinghy. During this period, we won multiple National titles as well as representing Australia overseas in 2 29er World Championships. This period culminated in December 2016 with us winning the ISAF World Youth Championships for Australia in Auckland.

We have now moved up a step into the Olympic 49erFX class and are training several times a week at our home club, Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club on Pittwater as well as monthly camps with the Australian Squad. After attending our first FX regattas in Canada and Portugal during 2017, our schedule for 2018 is pretty full, with Sailing World Cups in Miami and Hyeres, Euros and Sailing World Championships. Good results in these regattas will help with our short-term goal of getting onto the Australian Sailing Team and then onto the ultimate goal, a chance to win Gold in Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The Australian Sports Foundation has given a great platform with which to try and raise funds to support these trips and we appreciate all the support we can get.
