1st July, 2020
Alice Masterman grew up learning to sail in Chichester Harbour. Continued success in the 29er class meant she found herself travelling the country and competing at international events with fellow Emsworth sailor Ruth Allan. They achieved 3 national titles together and 2 Bronze World medals. From the 29er, Alice transitioned to the 49er FX with new partner Vikki Payne, giving it their best shot to learn the boat and compete against the best in the world. In September 2018 Alice was awarded a place on the British Sailing Team sailing with Bella Fellows and since then they have been training hard to climb up the rankings. The postponed 2020 Olympics means they are training in Weymouth pushing towards 2021. They see this as a great development opportunity with the overall aim of going to the 2024 Olympics and winning gold for Great Britain.

Alice had been looking forward to coaching lots of aspiring young sailors this summer, but the Coronavirus has meant that all the planned events have been cancelled. In the meantime, Alice is working hard to maintain her fitness levels as well as working locally to help raise the funds she so desperately needs in order to achieve her ambitions.

Havant Borough Sports Association is very proud to be supporting Alice and wish her all the very best in the future – we will be watching and cheering her on!
