Personal Mantra

Destiny is a matter of choice, it’s not something to be waited for, it’s a thing to be achieved.

My sporting hero is

Torah Bright.

If I wasn't sailing

I would be working in marketing for a company like Red Bull.

On my day off

I don't set an alarm and I take my time to do the simple things.

Superstition / Ritual

Never wear a regatta T-shirt during the event.
