Over the past three months I have spent my time reflecting on what I have achieved so far in my sailing and where my new direction will be. Winning the Laser Radial Worlds in 2004, second at the Yngling Worlds 2008 and competing at the Olympics, all while travelling the World with a sport that I love has been a fantastic experience.
During a meet and greet session for the Olympians at Sandringham Yacht Club I announced that I would be competing at the first World Cup ‘Sail Melbourne’.
Sandringham Y.C have been tremendously supportive over my campaign and it is hard for me to announce that the time is not right for me to be competing. I have not ruled out London but at this stage I wish to focus on balancing my life with study and work.
From a young age my dream was to compete at an Olympics and to win a gold medal. It has been my sole purpose in life up until now. Life has many different opportunities and I wish to experience them all before dedicating myself to training.
Thank you so much to all who have supported me. I will be around the Yacht Club during the event to give my full support.
Happy Sailing and I wish the event all the best!
