After trying an RS Tera, Henry was hooked and has never looked back, he gained a place in the RS Tera Class Association Intermediate Squad at the end of 2010

In 2011 Henry started competing outside Chichester Harbour, winning the Under 10’s trophy at the National Championships then going on to win the Inland Nationals in his first competitive season at 9 years old.

2012 has been another very strong season for Henry, competing in his first World Championships in Italy coming 4th in the Sport fleet, and his season highlight, winning the UK National Championships at Burnham Sailing Club.

He has also started sailing an RS Feva both as helm and crew, as a helm gaining a position in the Silver fleet at the RS Feva World Championships and as a crew delivering top 10 results at 2012 RS Feva Grand Prix.

In 2017 Henry moved into the 29er class and started to compete competitively.

Janne Krüger & Leonie Bergmann


Janne Krüger and Leonie Bergmann have both been sailing from a very young age with their parents in their native Germany.

They started sailing with each other in the winter of 2017, they are training at the Mühlenberger Segel Club (MSC) in Germany and are been coached by Alexander Goltz, Mark Bayer, Maike Christiansen and Henry Peters.

  • Medium term:  Qualifying for the World Cup or European Championship
  • Long term:       Switch to an Olympic boat class

Luke Patience & Chris Grube

Luke Patience and Chris Grube’s sailing relationship goes back a long way. The duo tasted success early in their sailing careers, winning bronze at the 470 class Junior World Championships in 2006.

They parted ways in 2009 – Patience joined forces with Stuart Bithell, while Grube teamed up with two-time Olympic silver medallist Nick Rogers.

Patience and Bithell pipped Grube and Rogers to the one men’s 470 spot at London 2012, and duly came home with a silver medal.

It was all change again for the Rio 2016 cycle, as Patience formed a new partnership with Elliot Willis in the 470 while Grube switched to the 49er to sail alongside Bithell and then Stevie Morrison.

When Willis was diagnosed with cancer just months before the Games, Patience called on Grube to step in – and they finished a credible fifth.

Realising their potential was strong, the pair then embarked on a new campaign for Tokyo 2020 and have since won Enoshima Olympic Week, the 470 North American Championships and the Miami round of the 2018 World Cup Series.
