This content has been archived. It may no longer be relevant

At age 11 Jared is possibly the youngest sailor to have represented South Africa in an International Regatta. His Optimist sailing has improved drastically over the three years that he has been sailing to the point that he is on his way to Worlds in Thailand.
Not only is he hoping to place well for the country but he is hoping to also place well in the team.
In addition Jared is training hard on a L26 Keel boat in preparation for the Lipton Cup Regatta taking place in August this year. Jared has proven to be a strong crew member on the bow of the boat – a difficult role to play when racing hard.
He is a very young sailor doing really well and has a promising future in sailing ahead of him.
