Team Phillips - 49er

Growing up in Sorrento, Victoria, both Sam & Will Phillips competed in their first sailing competition at a young age; Sam at just eight-years-old and Will sailed on the family mirror at Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club. Sam eventually teamed up with his brother Will in the 49er class. The talented Phillips brothers level of success is attributed to their motivated mindset of working hard and smart and being able to manage those high pressure situations in the moment. The duo made their Olympic debut in Tokyo and finished in overall 12th position.
