Kid to sail a 29er & pay it forward

Hey, thanks for hearing me out. Nice to meet you! I'm 13 years old and LOVE sailing. I'm raising funds to sail a 29er so I can represent Australia one day.  Apparently my parents took me sailing in a yacht race when I was just six weeks old by tying my baby capsule to the mast LOL. My sea legs learnt to walk on a boat and I have the scars to prove it! Recently I've been skippering a Manly Junior dinghy 'Toffee Apple' with the Manly Skiff Club, and crewing on some Flying 11's including 'The Big Apple' (at Manly), and 'Oscar' (at Belmont Skiff Club). I've also been sailing a yacht as Bowman in the NCYC Winter Series. Now all I want to do is sail a 29er...I know I'm young but why mess around when your heart says 29er!

If I can raise this money, I'll pay it forward by gifting my Manly Junior boat 'Toffee Apple'. It's the newest boat in the fleet and we'll be helping more up-and-comers for years to come!

I've been trying to sell it on the MJ Association website.
