Congratulations to Leo Purdie (Jockey Club Sarah Roe School) and fellow sailor Joel Suarez.
On the 21st and 22nd of May in very windy conditions, they won the 2022 Hebe Haven/Sailability 303 Class Double Handed Hansa Division beating out many competitors.
This result will contribute towards qualifying for the Hansa Asia Pacific Championships in Hiroshima, Japan in October 2022 and the World Championships in Gold Coast, Australia in November 2022.
Their win will also assist in supporting the long term goal of having sailing back in the Paralympics in 2028 in Los Angeles with the inclusion of special needs sailors so this is not only a wonderful achievement for themselves but also for the wider sailing community.
Leo has been sailing for many years with Sailability Hong Kong through the JCSRS sailing program as well as on Saturdays directly with Sailability. If you have an interest in sailing and would like to support Sailability you can find more info here.
In 2021, Leo Purdie was awarded the ESF Chairman's Award for Embodying the spirit and values of the school.
