Biography

Stuart Bithell claimed silver at the World Championships in 2009, just two weeks after joining forces with Luke Patience in the 470 class.

The duo were confirmed as Great Britain’s Olympic representatives in the 470 class after finishing second at the 2011 ISAF World Championships in Perth in December.

Bithell, who lists Bradley Wiggins among his heroes, learned to sail alongside his dad in a Firefly, aged seven.

At the 2012 Olympics in London Bithell won silver in the men's 470 M event.
