Talking Gold with Will Ryan & Iain Murray

27 August 2021 - 6:00 pm-7:00 pm

RSYS Member Iain Murray was the Australian Olympic Sailing Team Leader and oversaw the sailing campaign that led to fellow Member Will Ryan winning Gold in the Men’s 470s in Tokyo. We are delighted to host an online event with Iain and Will to share some of the stories of this Olympic success story.

The dynamic duo of Mat Belcher and Club Member Will Ryan won the Men’s 470 class at Enoshima Yacht Harbour on Japan’s Sagami Bay.

Will will discuss how the team regrouped after winning silver at the Rio Olympics in 2016; his team mate Mat Belcher; the role of Victor ‘The Medal Maker’ Kovalenko. Their preparation for Tokyo 2020 was hampered by being confined to training in Australia while many international competitors were racing in Europe. And then he will re-live the racing itself, the atmosphere, the competitors and exhilaration of winning Gold.

Olympian Iain Murray (Beijing 2008) is the Australian Olympic Sailing Team Leader. Despite it being the most logistically complex campaign, due to the pandemic, it was the second-best result by an Australian team at an Olympics. Iain will take us behind the scenes of this epic event.
