About

”After graduating school I began a full time Laser Campaign from 2008. Qualified for the Australian Sailing Team in 2010 and was training partner to Tom Slingsby in the lead up to 2012. Qualified for Rio 2016 after a successful quad from 2012-2016 with numerous Worldcup Medals and World Championship Medals. Was successful in Rio 2016 Olympics walking away with the Gold medal and once been branching out onto different classes to get a wider base of skills, mainly the moth class. Won the Laser Worlds in 2019 but was unsuccessful in gaining selection to represent Australian in 2020 Olympics and defend the Gold Medal. Followed up with Bronze in Dec 2019 in the Moth Worlds and since been looking at improvements of how to get to the top step in the Moth Class.”
