'Mat Belcher Victor Kovalenko and Will Ryan'
Following on from the departure from London 2012 and changing of team mates, Mathew Belcher discusses the upcoming Sail Melbourne and the road to Rio 2016 while giving thanks to those who continue to support the team.
The past three months have been one of the biggest times of my life, on behalf of Malcolm and I we cannot thank you all enough for your support.
But celebrations of past events cannot last forever and now it is time to look to the future. As many of you probably know I have decided to campaign again for Rio 2016. While I will certainly miss Malcolm at the front of the boat, I look forward to this new challenge with my new team mate, Will Ryan.
Tomorrow marks the start of the first round of the 2013 ISAF Sailing World Cup, Sail Melbourne. I can't believe that it has already been three months since the games. Over the past two weeks Will and I have been out on the water and are looking forward to getting things started.
Thank you for your continued support, the Australian Sailing Team, our yacht clubs, all our individual sponsors, friends and families and a special thank you to ABeam Consulting who has come on board as our major private sponsor, giving us the opportunity to continue campaigning.
You can follow our new Facebook page
or via our new team website Belcher Ryan 2016.
All the best.
