About the project
Sailor Zoe Thomson will be returning to Europe in May to commence her campaign for the 2020 Olympic games. She will make her debut in the open laser radial class this season as the current Laser Radial Youth World Champion. Her natural talent combined with her determination and dedication will see Zoe give her all competing against the reigning Olympic Champion and other seasoned sailors. Competition at this level is an essential component of Zoe’s campaign. She will travel to Europe on at least two occasions this season competing in four regattas.
As an athlete based in Perth, Western Australia the distance to training and competitions around Australia as well as overseas is significant. This travel comes at a cost and they are escalating. There is also equipment to maintain and purchase. Although Zoe works as a coach when her schedule allows, receives some funding from Australian Sailing and smaller local grants she needs to raise additional funds to achieve her sporting goal. Money raised through this platform will assist with travel, equipment and accommodation costs. All contributions, large or small are tax deductible and very much appreciated. Please donate today!
