To campaign and qualify for Paris 2024 Olympics here’s what my biggest race looks like; and why your support with donations or sponsorship is important.


Training : Selected for Australian Sailing’s ‘Fast Track’ program to get ‘Paris 2024 ready’ 

Fast Track is a NSW based high performance program with Olympic coaches. I’m based in Tasmania and required to fly to Newcastle every fortnight for a two week on - two week off training program until end of October 2021. That’s 21 x Hobart - Newcastle return flights including accommodation and food.

 

Boat Purchases needed : To compete and race the world’s best.

1 x Nacra 17 in Australia. 1 x Nacra 17 in Europe.

 

Competitions to attend : Compete in ranking and qualifying regattas.

3 x years of national and international travel.


Sponsorship packages

A range of sponsorship packages is available for national and international exposure. Details provided upon request.


You'll also find me at local, state and regional regattas. Between all this, there's off water physical and mental training with the New South Wales Institute of Sport (NSWIS) and Tasmanian Institute of Sport (TIS). 


A little about me

In case you’re wondering, I’m 18 years old and studying a Bachelor of Applied Science (Marine Engineering) and Naval Architecture, at the Australian Maritime College in Tasmania, Australia.

My program is supported by organisations such as;

// THE AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF SPORT

// NSW INSTITUTE OF SPORT

// TASMANIAN INSTITUTE OF SPORT

// AUSTRALIAN SAILING

// UNIVERSITY OF TASMANIA

I'm in an elite athlete program with flexibility to both campaign and study. 


It's eat, sleep, study, sail, repeat... I wouldn't have it any other way.

Your support of a tax-deductible donation goes a long way to helping me fly the flag and represent Australia in my Hobart to Paris race to the Olympics.


See you on the water!
