“The sports scholarship scheme has provided me with support to supplement my studies alongside my sporting goals. I will continue working towards my degree next year on a part time basis in order to allow me to focus more time on sailing and my goal of going to Tokyo 2020. Therefore the sports scholarship scheme would help me by continuing to provide support financially and with my physical development, both of which are key for me to put together a successful Olympic campaign”
“Over the year, I’ve been able to balance my sailing life and work very well, I’m currently on for a 2:1 this year and hope to achieve the same if not better next year. In sailing I’ve been able to achieve my goals by moving up to the next level of support in the British sailing team, I’m now named on the official world class sailing program for the British sailing team after achieving 2nd at the U23 Europeans. The support from the HPP both financially and physically this year has been immense and is definitely a factor that has led to my success”
