Australian Sailing Team Patrons

The Australian Sailing Team Patrons are a group of high achieving individuals with a passion and commitment to sailing and Olympic competition, who financially support and interact with the Australian Sailing Team athletes.

The Australian Sailing Team Patrons provide essential additional funding and services for the competing athletes.

The Patrons provide the impetus for the team to attract and establish a comprehensive commercial partner program. The program was introduced with the inception of the Australian Sailing Team in March 2006 and includes the support of a small group of generous people from within the sailing community:

  • David Gotze
  • Dr Leslie Green
