Australian Sailing Team member Tom Slingsby has been named the 2010 ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year.
Tom already a multiple world champion in the Laser class is the first Australian to win this prestigious award.
CST Composites has been involved with the Australian Sailing Team since 2007 as the official equipment supplier. We decided to supply tiller extensions for Tom and the rest of the team including 49er World Champion Nathan Outteridge, in order to offer them a custom solution that would hopefully provide an edge over their opposition. Working with each team member we produced tiller extensions that are specific to their sailing style.
It is fantastic to see Australia’s best sailors achieve their goals with just a little over 18 months until the Olympics.
