Jake came to sailing late in his youth; originally a swimmer but found he was more at home on the deck of a boat than in the water himself. He had dreams of representing Australia as a seven year old, watching the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. As a junior he sailed through the ranks, becoming a Juniour World, European and Australian Champion. As a 23-year old, he made his Olympic debut at the Rio 2016 Games, in the Finn class finishing overall in eighth place. Now having represented Australia at the Tokyo Games his overall 7th finish was a great effort.
