My Journey

Having spent most of my childhood sailing out on the waters of Port Phillip from the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria, I have come to realise that sailing is an integral part of my life and I have a burning passion to explore its possibilities. 

In 2016 the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, new 'home' to the America's Cup, developed a pathway for youth sailors into professional multihull sailing with its ‘Performance Programme’.  This programme was developed to take the top youth sailors from various classes and give them the skills to compete at an international level in foiling catamarans. In 2017 I was fortunate to be one of those selected for this year's event and benefited enormously from an intensive month-long camp in full foiling carbon fibre Nacra 20's with some of New Zealand's finest coaches.  


Upon my return to Melbourne I was pleasantly surprised to find that I have been chosen to race at the Red Bull Foiling Generation World Series. Red Bull Foiling Generation provides talented young sailors, aged 16 – 20, the opportunity to advance their careers through elite hydrofoil racing. The seven-stop series, in as many countries - Japan, UK, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, France and New Zealand serves as training waters for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, which caters to competitors aged 19-25. I have been invited to compete in the New Zealand leg on 24th & 25th February 2018.

Few people get the opportunity to follow their passion in life and I invite you to become part of My Journey. ​All donations are tax-deductible through the Australian Sports Foundation and your support could make a lifetime of difference!
