Recently Tom has sailed in many big regattas and has achieved the following results: RS200 Europeans 2010 Lake Garda - 15th overall (as crew) RS200 Nationals 2010 Scotland - 16th overall and recorded our first race win as well as coming second youth for the second year. RS 200 Open Circuit 1st Exmouth 2009, 3rd Exmouth 2010, 3rd Parkstone Open 2008, 5th Youth Championships 2009. RYA Youth Team Racing Championships 2009 2nd Overall Parkstone YC team Commodores Challenge team member in 2008, 2009 and part of the 2010 winning team. He has also been invited to the qualifiers for the British Keelboat Academy in September 2011. In addition to his racing results, he has tried to give something back to the sport by using his skills and knowledge to help others and teach them how to sail. In the summer of 2009 he qualified as an RYA dinghy instructor and since then he has coached Cadet sailors on Tuesday evenings and has organised and run coaching days for his club's RYA On Board Scheme. He says that ' Being able to share and encourage others to sail and see the people I'm teaching having a great time on the water is something that I take immense pride in. This is surely what the Olympic Games are about "not just the winning but the taking part" to applaud all the competitors, not just the winners.' With this attitude he deserves to be a torch bearer taking the games and their ethos forward.
