Personal Mantra

When you want to succeed as much as you want to breathe then you will be successful.

My Sporting hero is

Michael Jordan because of his professionalism and sheer ability to dominate a game of basketball. He also has some pretty good quotes.

If I wasn't sailing

I'd be more than likely playing AFL.

On my day off

I like to do some light activity and get outside.

Superstition / Ritual

I have to eat the same thing for breakfast each morning of a regatta.
