Thank you for taking the time to learn about who I am and my sailing career.


Sailing is my passion and the centre of my life. I started when I was 8 years old and thanks to my parents ongoing support I began regularly competing and this was when I discovered my true passion for the sport.


Over time I qualified and attended my first World Championships in the Optimist class where I well and truely exceeded my own expectations. This opened my eyes to the sailing world and pushed me deeper into the sport.


I later transitioned into the 420 class, followed by the 49er class where I competed in a number of international events, including successful results in multiple World Championships. This ongoing development has allowed me to realise that I want a career in sailing and I will strive to be the best across all disciplines. 


I am now a multi Australian Champion, a scholarship holder in Australian sailing and the Institute of sport and sailing competitively in a number of classes including the 49er, Moth, Wing Foil and Keel Boats. Competitively positioning myself as an all rounded water sports athlete. 


An important part of my passion for sailing is being able to inspire and grow the sport for others for years to come. I wish to empower emerging sailors and for them to experience the same joy I have experienced throughout my own sailing and coaching endeavours.


Till the present day, my family, yacht clubs, the federation and myself have contributed to my major pillars of funding to support my sailing career. However, looking forward, I am in need of greater funding to continue to achieve competitive results and train at an optimal level. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated. 


Thank you 

Ryan
