We are members of the British Sailing Team in the 49er class competing to represent TeamGB at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
This summer the 49er Class has a big equipment change going into the next 4 year cycle meaning that we need to purchase new sails as their design is changing. Our current kit will become obsolete for future World Class events once the Rio 2016 Games has finished.
Equipment costs in 49er sailing are huge. We need your help to raise some of the £3,500 required to purchase the new style sails this summer so that we can be in the best position going into the 4 year cycle.
Having won a bronze medal at the 2015 U24 World Championships we are now working on jumping up the senior fleet to be in a position to gain selection for Tokyo 2020. To do this we require the best kit possible to keep up with the development in the class.
