AUS644 "Aurum"

Andrew Dempsey is 14yrs old and started sailing at the South of Perth YC within weeks of emigrating from UK.  Learning to sail allowed Andrew to make sailing friends before starting Yr9 at his new school.   Having swapped the Thames for the Swan River & the Indian Ocean - Andrew is on water in summer 6 days a week either sailing or rowing,  his second passion.   When on dry land he usually has his head  in a Kindle  - his third passion.    Andrew’s greatest sailing thrill without a doubt was achieving his position as an AOST 2017 Team Member, a proud moment.   Second most exciting moment - unexpectedly catching an amazing wave and surfing in his Optimist at Mandurah.  Andrew loves single handed sailing but also the challenge and tactics of teams and match racing in any kind of boat
