Recipients of the scholarships will receive a host of benefits over the coming year, including mentorship and on-water training from Andrew Brown, One Design Manager, and the Doyle Sails team, a tour and work experience at the Doyle loft and a Doyle gear bag and kit.

Congratulations go to the four new recipients and all participants at the Nationals, and thank you to our outgoing scholarship holders, Blake McGlashin, Scott McKenzie, Jackson Keon and Lewis Anderson. We look forward to continuing to work with them and watching their sailing careers progress.
