Year 10 student, Thomas has achieved international success, sailing into second place at the 2013 Topper World Championships.
Taking place in Lochtudy, Brittany, Thomas sailed consistently throughout the competition and showed excellent decision making skills to win the silver medal and finish as the highest placed British boat and highest placed under-15 year old.
Following a rigorous training and selection schedule through the winter, Thomas was selected to represent his country in the UK Junior Squad 2012/13 last year, competing in a range of prestigious events such as the Topper Irish nationals, where he achieved ninth place, the Welsh Championships and the North West England Topper series, which he won in record time.
The highlight of the summer was the chance to compete in the World Championships and the remainder of 2013 will involve trying to retain the RYA Zone Championship and qualify for the National Squad for the second year running.
Thomas, who has sailed since he was six, is a member of Redesmere Sailing Club, in Cheshire.
