WATCH | An Evening with Olympic champion Will Ryan and AST’s Sam Ellis

Fresh from winning Olympic gold alongside Mat Belcher at Tokyo 2020, CYCA Member and YSA Alumni Will Ryan provided superb insight into his sailing journey as part of the CYCA’s ‘Evening with’ series.

CYCA Life Member Peter Shipway interviewed Will and the Australian Sailing Team’s Applied Technology and Performance Services Lead, Sam Ellis (also YSA Alumni).

Will discussed the physical challenges of a Men’s 470 Olympic campaign, how he persisted with the class after winning silver at Rio 2016, his future plans and more.

Sam took us behind the scenes, explaining how the Australian Sailing Team has used technology to keep on top of their game throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
