Laurie Jury is a product of the esteemed Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron's Youth Training Programme, which he commenced at the age of 15. Match racing became his chosen discipline, pushing through the ranks to become Telecom New Zealand National Match Racing Champion in 2009 and, in 2010 his team won the Mumbai International Match Race.
His team’s other sailing accomplishments include first places at the Nations Cup Grand Final, USA Grand Slam, Knickerbocker Cup, Oakcliff Match Race and the Qatar Match Race.
Competing on the Tour has been his team’s ultimate goal for the last three years and he knows that he will need to be fighting for the world title if he is to make a name for himself both in global sailing and in New Zealand where the sport of sailing enjoys such a rich heritage.
During his free time he passes on his skills and experience through coaching, nationally and internationally.
