Iain ‘Goobs’ Jensen started sailing in his hometown of Wangi Wangi when he was five years old. At the age of 16, he represented Australia for the first time, winning the 420 Youth World Championships. In 2009 Jensen teamed up with Artemis Racing teammate Nathan Outteridge. The pair immediately stamped their mark on the sport, winning the 49er World Championships in Lake Garda, Italy. Two years later, the duo took their second world title in Perth, Australia, and in 2012 they won gold at the London Olympic Games. Iain joined Artemis Racing shortly after the Olympics as wing trimmer for the 34th America’s Cup. At 26, this is his second America’s Cup campaign.
