Scotsman Andy Brown started out on his sailing journey through the RYA run initiative Team15. Aimed at promoting skills and sailing fun the scheme was a starting point for Brown to join the British Sailing Team.
Brown progressed in to the Scottish Development Squad before representing the British Youth Sailing team at the 2017 Youth Worlds which later confirmed his spot on the elite program.
The second year Naval Architecture student has claimed a couple of British RS:X titles along the way and has also stepped on to the podium on the world stage when he took bronze at the U19 Worlds in 2017. Brown is currently continuing to combine his studies with a tilt at the RS:X at senior level.
