About the project
I first began sailing at the age of 14 on the O'pen Bic and then I progressed into Multihulls. Since moving into the F16 Viper I have represented Australia at 3 World Championships with my best result being a 4th Overall at the 2017 Viper World Championships. Following this result, I was invited into the Australian Sailing Squad for the mixed multihull, the Nacra 17. I paired up with Lachie White and together we are working towards our goal of representing Australia at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games on the Foiling Nacra 17 Mixed Multihull. We have both been given scholarships into the VIS and NSWIS, this has granted us access to Personal Trainers, Sports Scientists, Nutritionists and Physios.
For the next 3 years, we must race in Europe to boost our world rankings and achieve selection benchmark results. This is where we need your help. To be competitive we must purchase a boat which will be based in Europe and spend 6 months training and racing overseas every year. We also need a boat based here in Australia to train and compete in the Australian summer season.
Spending 6 months overseas is very expensive, car hires and towing our boat across Europe to compete in regattas, accommodation, entry fees, maintaining our boat with new sails and equipment. This fundraising program would help support me financially and give me the opportunity to compete and train at all the major competitions with my ultimate goal of being selected for the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020 on the Nacra 17.
This fundraising program will allow me to travel, train, and compete with the equipment we need to win.
