The Sailingfast Jockeys tend to have a few things in common: they are passionate about sailing and are really enthusiastic people so they make great ambassadors both for the sport and for Sailingfast.
Sailingfast have a long history of supporting young, aspiring sailors from our time as Scottish Sailing to the present day. Currently we sponsor sailors in the following classes: Laser Radial, Laser Standard and Musto Performance Skiff.
Niamh Harper - 420 North Sails
Niamh Harper from Angus represents Loch Tummel Sailing Club when she's competing. This picture is of Niamh partnering up with Rebecca Coles in a 420 at the end of 2015. Niamh receives support from us as a North Sails jockey and we look forward to hearing how she goes in her new Mackay 420, prepped and pimped by Sailingfast, of course!

Jamie successfully defended his title as the Laser Radial Youth Champ in the UK in 2016 and has now transitioned into the Standard fleet. We look forward to hearing how he gets on with the Laser Mark 2 sail in 2017.
Milo Gill-Taylor - Laser Radial
Milo started his racing career in the Optimist class representing GB at three World Championships and winning Regatta, Junior and Senior fleets at the UK Optimist National Championships.
Milo is now in the Laser Radial where he is currently part of the GB Youth Squad at only 16 years of age.
Lorenzo Chiavarini - Laser Standard
Lorenzo Chiavarini from Bellanoch near Oban started 2014 with a wrist injury and wasn't sure how the summer would work out. In the end, he came back with a vengeance to become the U21 World Champion in the Laser Standard rig.
