Tom Johnson grew up sailing in Perth competing on the Olympic class 49er and foiling Moth circuits. His commitment to the sport and continued development led to him getting called up to take part in the 2014-2015 The Ocean Race with Team Vestas Wind alongside teammate Nicolai Sehested.
He is well-versed in the mechanics of foiling high-speed technical boats having competed as wing trimmer for ORACLE TEAM USA in the 2017 America’s Cup, before returning to offshore racing for his second lap of the globe in the 2017-2018 Volvo Ocean Race with Vestas 11th Hour Racing.
Johnson is a SailGP veteran having served as wing trimmer for the United States SailGP Team in the inaugural season. He will be an invaluable member of the Denmark SailGP Team in Season 2 having experience navigating the supercharged F50 catamaran – easing the learning curve for his teammates and making them competitive from the start.
