The Skipper

From Adelaide, Australia.

I am a dreamer from Australia. Pretty much since I can remember, the dream has been to sail solo, non stop, unassisted, around the world and I hope to achieve this by competing in the GGR 2026.

By day and night I am an Emergency Physician. This is a job that always reminds you that the moment is now.

I hope along the way to be able to advocate for better protection of the world’s oceans and atmosphere and to save my soul.

The ultimate test and the ultimate dream.

Best and worst aspects

The event is fantastic and to be a part of it would be a great experience – I think ultimately life changing and involving a lot of forever friendships across different countries and cultures. The worst part could be the risks associated with the adventure… dismasting, pitch poling, drinking your own urine etc.
