Sam is a double world and triple European and National sailing champion. Away from his time sailing, Sam is dedicated to creating and supporting opportunities for young people to be involved in sport, education, employment training and volunteering. Sam works closely with many charities and focuses on helping disadvantaged children through sport and giving back to the community. Not only does Sam take the time to work closely and individually mentor young aspiring sailers, but he has also worked with Sport England as the face of their online portal.

Sam is an Access Sport Ambassador and supporter of the Ignite programme.

Having grown up through local club sport, I know the importance of ensuring young athletes of all abilities have the opportunities at local level. It's great to see access sport developing these by empowering local communities.
