The road to Tokyo 2020 in full swing for Annie Wilmot & Natasha Bryant

Earlier this month we were honoured to receive the prestigious award of “Australian Female Sailors of the Year”, sharing the spotlight with male sailor of the year and skipper of the 2017 America’s Cup winning team Glen Ashby.  Credit: Andrea FrancoliniCredit: Andrea Francolini

The night was particularly special due to the establishment of the Australian Sailing Hall of Fame. The inaugural inductees included prominent Olympic and America’s Cup winning sailors and coaches. It was truly an honor to be in a room filled with remarkable sailors that offer so much inspiration. 
 
Receiving this award is particularly special to us as our mentor, friend, and Olympic Silver medalist Lisa Darmanin was the 2015 and 2016 Australian Female Sailor of the Year recipient. Over the past three years Lisa has mentored us in every aspect of balancing study, lifestyle and elite sports campaigning. She has played such an important role in inspiring and educating us towards achieving our goals. 

One of the many things we enjoy about sailing is to be able to “give back” by mentoring younger sailors.  Last week we were given the opportunity to speak at the NSW International Optimist Dinghy Association’s “Opti Chicks” event at our home club; the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club. It was a great pleasure to share our failures, successes and our passion for sailing with the next generation of superstars!

December is an exciting month for us, competing in three domestic regattas throughout Australia. This week we head off to Melbourne for a national training camp followed by Sail Melbourne. Next, we head back to Sydney to compete in Sail Sydney. We will wrap up the year in Brisbane for the 49erFX Nationals. We are excited and ready for the month to come!

None of this would be possible without your ongoing support, and for that we would like to send our thanks. We are incredibly grateful for the opportunities you are providing, allowing us to get closer to reaching our goal.

To help us achieve our goal, we are reaching out and donations no matter how small are all gratefully received. Tax deductible donations can be made through the Australian Sports Foundation to either Tash or Annie
