Alex Jones Topper/ ILCA 4

Alex is in the process of moving from up from his Topper to the ILCA 4. After a brilliant year on the water winning the Topper Worlds this year. He has a busy schedule of ILCA events this year and we look forward to working with him to find out what unique parts and systems he is using on his boat.

Let's find out some more info on how and where he started sailing.

When Did You Start Sailing?

6 Years Old

What Was Your First Boat?

HIs first boat was a AB… a what I hear you ask? It’s a 2-person boat that is super old. They are locally made and only exist at Parkstone Yacht club. I came 2nd in the AB World Championships, we didn’t have to travel far 🤣 

What Club Do You Sail From?

Parkstone Yacht Club 

What Was Your Biggest Achievement So Far In Sailing?

Winning the 2023 Topper World Championships in Cork, Ireland. I went over the finish line grabbed the GB flag and did a front flip off my boat, I was elated. 

What Is Your Favourite Venue You Have Sailed At?

Riva del Garda, Italy, bring on the wind! I went there in 2022 and won silver fleet. It can be 5 knots one minute then 30 the next, awesome sailing. 

What Is Your Main Goal For 2024?

Become an Olympian at 15! Only joking, my goal is to focus, train hard, coach younger kids and qualify for the gold fleet at my first ILCA 4 Worlds. But most of all, keep having fun sailing 😃 

Where Would You Most Like To Sail In The Future?

At school, every day. If my lessons could all be replaced by sailing, I’d be a very happy teenager. But if this wasn’t possible, then somewhere hot.
