Yukie Yokoyama, started sailing at the age of 9. She is an accomplished sailor and is a three times SEA Games Gold Medalist. She was until recently a NUS Global Merit Scholar studying Environment Studies. Cheryl Teo, has been sailing for eight years. She was most recently at Ngee Ann Polytechnic studying Business and Social Enterprise. Together, they sail the 470, an Olympic class of sailing.
In 2017, the two girls decided to commit 100% to their Asian Games and Olympic Dreams and deferred school to train and sail full time in 2018. Their weekly schedule comprises of sailing 5 days a week, as well as daily gym training for strength and bulk.
Cheryl and Yukie are embarking on an aggressive training programme, which sees them travelling to France, Spain and Portugal to participate in 5 international regattas in 2018. This will cost over $37,000 in expenses for flights, accommodation, food. They hope to raise $10,000 to offset a quarter of their training costs.

About the Charity
Singapore Sailing Federation is the national governing body for sailing in Singapore. Together with its affiliates, the federation's mission is to get more Singaporeans, every student included, to go sailing. To inspire Singaporeans, the federation runs national training programs to help Singaporean sailors to win medals at regional and international events including the SEA Games, Asian Games and hopefully soon enough, the Olympic Games. Singaporean sailors have stepped up to the Olympic level and are reaching for the first Olympic sailing medal for Singapore. With more local home grown sailors putting their studies and careers on hold to give it their all at the Olympics, the federation needs more funds to support their efforts.
