2019 UK Laser Qualifiers
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the final UK Laser Worlds and Europeans qualifier of the series, as this clashed with the U21 Worlds in Croatia. In the first 2 events of the series at Sunderland and Weymouth, I finished 9th (3rd U21 and 1st U19) and 12th (1st U21). I am currently 2nd overall in the U21 series and 12th in the senior series. I am looking forward to some more qualifier racing at the 3 upcoming qualifiers in March.

Vilamoura Winter Training Camp
In December, I flew out to Vilamoura, Portugal with the rest of the British team for a long training camp and to race in the Portugal Grand Prix against some of the best senior sailors in the world. I finished 38th overall in the event. It was a tough, focussed week and lining up against these guys was a huge experience for me. I had a great time training and racing out there with the likes of Robert Scheidt and other big names! It was good to get away from the cold and really put some hours in on the water.
As well as this, I have been spending a lot of time down in Weymouth over the winter so far, training as part of the British Youth Sailing Team and putting a lot of time into my physical preparation with help from TASS. I appreciate all the support I receive to help me enjoy my sailing and get the most out of my campaign. I am keen to prove myself this year.
3rd November 2019
This last season, I competed in the U21 Laser World Championships in Split, Croatia and the U21 Laser European Championships in Dziwnow, Poland. These were my first U21 international competitions and I finished 76th (29th U19) and 84th (33rd U19) in large, very competitive fleets. I also competed in the famous Kiel Week, finishing 37th. I have had a very productive summer of racing and I have highlighted some key areas which I have been working on for the coming season. I am grateful for the continued support from Phoenix Marine as I continue to progress and climb up through the international rankings. I am looking forward to getting back on the international circuit and hopefully making some big improvements.
