William began sailing at age 7 when his dad bought their first Hobie catamaran. For his 14th birthday he was given a Laser and began racing in club races. His dad is an avid racer and has crewed for him in many regattas. William began going to regattas with his Laser when he turned 16. However his real passion remains with catamaran racing.. He enjoys sailing any type of boat he can get his hands on.

William and his brother Nick qualified to the Youth Team in the Hobie 16 class at the CYA Youth National Championships. William also enjoys rugby, football and wrestling.
