CHELSEA Bradford, who started sailing at 9, is the toast of Hillarys Yacht Club.

At the tender age of 19 she won the club champion award and skippered Whispering Jack, with her dad Bruce as part of the crew, to win overall consistency in division 1.

“I was focused on exams at the time,” the second year chemistry major at UWA said of the accolade. “I was proud; I think dad was more excited than me.”
