Athlete Biography

Jake Lilley began sailing at the age of 15 in his home town of Brisbane and is currently the world no. 5 in the sport.

Previously coached by US Olympic silver medallist in the Finn class John Bertrand, Lilley is currently coached by Euan McNicol after they paired up in March this year.

He counts fellow sailors Adrian Finglas, Ben Ainslie, Tom Slingsby and Ed Wright as his biggest influencers.

The youngest ever Australian National Championships winner in his class, he secured Australia a quota spot in the Finn Class for the Rio Games at the 2014 World Championships in Santander, Spain.

He was Australia’s sole competitor in the Finn class at the Rio Test Event last year, where he finished in eighth place.
