Lucas met Trev in early 2014, never having stepped foot on a yacht before. After a weekend aboard, he was hooked, and taught himself the theory of sailing from an iPhone app. Trev filled in the practical components.

Two years to the day after first stepping aboard Apriori, Lucas and Trev won the inaugural double handed division of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race (360 miles).

He regularly sails Apriori when Trev is committed elsewhere.

Lucas is currently working towards his first single handed race. He says he isn’t competitive, but he hates losing.
