I am a Para Sailing Athlete with two world Championship gold and two silver medals since 2015 competing internationally in the World Sailing recognized Hansa 303 Male division.
I am a Para sailor due to the effects of Kennedys Disease, a progressive motor neuron condition with no cure or treatment that cause muscle wastage throughout the body. I am classified a level 3 but race against level 7 athletes.
I am passionate about my sport but frustrated that funding has stopped due to Para Sailing being excluded from Para Olympic competition after Rio.
I am the current Para Sailor of the year for Australian Sailing (AS)
I give back to my sport as a qualified coach, Commodore of Wynyard Yacht Club, Vice President of Sailability Tasmania and a member of the AS Regional Advisory committee.
With support for and donations I will continue to be involved in my sport for as long as possible and through this fundraising project with the Australian Sports Foudantion, donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
I thank you for your support.
