Australia driver Tom Slingsby has been put under the spotlight in SailGP’s Get to Know series ahead of next week’s KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix | Sydney.

Driver of two-time defending SailGP champions Australia, Slingsby reveals his first sailing memories, his sailing inspiration and the name of the first boat he ever owned.

When asked what advice Slingsby would give to himself 10 years ago, he said: “I think to just relax, and not to stress about it too much. In the past I’ve been a bit wound up trying to get every good result but really at the end of the day only the big ones matter.”
