The beginnings

He began his adventure with sailing at the age of 3, thanks to his mother – a sailing instructor – who took him for training. It was his family who gave him support and motivated him to continue working to be better and better.

Career

He began his serious starts in 2009 in the Optimist class. He took 11th place in the Polish Under-11 Championships, and in the B-53 Polish Championships. The turning point was 2018 when he won the Polish Championship and the Polish Cup in the Omega class.

Among his greatest successes, he lists the 3rd place at the European Junior Championships in Match Racing in Croatia. In the same season, he joined the Jabłkowski Sailing Team, with which he won the 2nd place in the Polish Match Racing Championship, the Netherlands Championship in Match Racing and the 1st place in Polish Sailing League.

In 2019 he joined the HRM Racing Team.

Privately

A student, a sailor, and – in his spare time – a cook. Thanks to sailing, he combines his two greatest passions, i.e. swimming and travelling. He says about himself: “if I have a free weekend, which does not happen too often, one thing is certain – I already have a trip planned.”
