Personal Mantra

If you can believe it, you can achieve it.

My Sporting hero is…

Tom Slingsby, the ultimate professional, super driven and mentally strong.

If I wasn’t sailing, I would…

be doing another Olympic sport.

On my day off, I…

try and do some other fun activities on the water or in the sun.
