470 sailor Nia Jerwood comes from a strong sailing family, but the lessons she's learning from four-time hockey Olympian and dual gold medallist Liane Tooth OAM are unique.
Jerwood was paired with Tooth after being one of five young sportspeople nationwide to be accepted into the 2018 Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship and Mentoring Program.
Jerwood is urging other young sailors to follow her lead and prepare to apply for the scholarship mid-year.
