WSC Stories – 7 September 2021
Rockal Eveans is Bermuda’s SSL Gold Cup Team Captain and regular Finn sailor at WSC.
I grew up sailing in Bermuda, I spent more time on the water than on land in my free time, driven by my Grandfather Howard Lee. He was my role model, having represented Bermuda in the Finn Class at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. I grew up wanting to be just like him, having the same drive, passion and commitment for the sport we both loved.
As part of my Olympic campaign, I relocated from Bermuda to Sydney when I was given the opportunity to attend a training camp hosted by NB Sail Sports, run out of Woolhara Sailing Club. There were several Australian and International Finn Sailors who attended the camp also.
Some of the main highlights in the Finn Class:
- Represent Bermuda at the World Sailing Championships in 2018.
- 1st place Queensland State Championships in 2019,
- 3rd place NSW State Championships in 2018.
I have made some great friends from WSC, from the moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome and part of the family. It is s great convenient location with the new ramp providing easy access to Sydney harbour.
