At the age of 8, Rowan learnt to sail an Optimist and it rapidly became his favorite sporting passion. He quickly moved on to racing on a national level in the GBR optimist squad where he honed his racing skills. But it was in the 29er, where having the opportunity to sail internationally, that Rowan moved to a higher level of competitive success. Resulting in winning the 2014 29er EUROSAF European Championships!

Today Rowan is studying for a degree in Human Anatomy and still competing and having success at a top level in the UK University team racing circuit. As both a 29er and Optimist Coach with some amazing coaching results, Rowan also gets great satisfaction in passing on his skills and knowledge to the next generation of sailors.
