ABOUT ME 

I am 16 years old, and since the age of 7 I’ve been sailing, honing my skills in various vessels like Pacers, Flying 11 and 29ers. In early 2022 I ventured to the iQFOiL - an exhilarating sport blending traditional windsurfing and ultra modern hydrofoiling. My goal is to compete against the world's best in international regattas and ultimately to represent Australia at the Olympics.


GOALS

I am part of the 2023 Australian Youth Squad and QAS training partner. My 2023 goal was to compete in the iQFOiL Youth & Junior European Championships and place in the top 20. 

☑️ I achieved 18th among 145 competitors in my first International regatta (U19 men)  

Following this regatta I planned to transition from the youth board to the adult board and be competitive at the end of year State and National regattas. 

☑️ Placed 3rd at Sail Sydney - the Oceanic Championships and World Championship Qualifier event (Olympic class) 

☑️ Placed 4th at Sail Melbourne (Olympic class) 

☑️ Placed 2nd at Queensland State Championship (Olympic class) 


My 2024 goals are:

☑️ To be selected as a categorised QAS (Queensland Academy of Sport) athlete

☑️ To be selected in the Australian Sailing Pathway Team - Developing

⬜ Compete at the Princesa Sofia Regatta in Palma, Spain (20 MAR-6 APR) for my first International Olympic class regatta and get into the gold fleet.

⬜ Compete at the iQFOiL & Junior European Championships in Embrun, France (2-11 JUL) and place top 10.

⬜ Continue to compete and be competitive at State and National regattas


My ultimate goal:

⬜ Compete at an Olympic level (2028 Los Angeles, 2032 Brisbane, AUS)


FUNDING

I bring exceptional dedication and skill to this emerging sport. With aspirations to represent Australia on the global stage, I've demonstrated the potential to become a future champion. However the undeniable truth is that funding is a critical factor for success. I am reaching out to you for your financial help and support towards equipment and travel costs, and welcome you to be part of this dream.
