Since birth, Blake was always destined to be part of the Sailing Community in Australia. After years of working during school holidays in the loft with his father Col, Blake took the next step to join Doyles Sails in 2006. Blake is a very active sailor and enjoys getting involved at all levels. This has led to sailing with teams that have won IRC and Class National Championships, as well as offshore racing, taking part in the ORCV offshore calendar every year and having completed several Sydney to Hobart yacht races, including last year's race on Chutzpah, where the boat placed 2nd on IRC Overall and 1st in their division. Blake is known to be a very approachable person, always willing to give assistance to the local sailor and answer any questions they may have.
