Skipper David Gilmour, son of Peter Gilmour led The University of Western Australia's sailing team to victory at this year's Australian University Games in Perth.
David Gilmour (19) of Mosman Park who studies Commerce at UWA, is an experienced sailor who won the title of WA State Match Racing Champion in June.
Gilmour senior is a four-time World Champion of Match Race Sailing and a veteran skipper of sailing's most iconic event, the America's Cup - and David is following in his father's wake.
His past successes include first place in both the 2009 WA State Match Racing Championships Freshwater and the 2009 March Match Cup and he gained second place in the 2009 ISAF (International Sailing Federation) Team Racing World Championship.
UWA boasts one of the best sailing teams competing at Australian University Games and the team train together once a week, emphasising the importance of teamwork in the sport.
The UWA sailing team competed against more than 60 students from five universities including close rivals, Fremantle's University of Notre Dame.
UWA cycling teams are also in contention for a medal.
James Lewin (20) of Churchlands is UWA Cycling captain. In his second year of a Bachelor of Science, James received a UWA Sports Club Scholarship this year after the University recognised his achievement in the 2009 World Age Group Triathlon Championships where he earned second place.
"I'm currently training for the Noosa Triathlon in October which is one of the biggest triathlon events in the world," James said. "Uni Games are a part of my training and a chance to compete and test myself."
Prominent members of the women's team include WAIS athletes Sarah Kent (20) of Duncraig and Briony King (17) of Applecross, making up the strongest UWA cycling team in years.
The events they compete in are individual and pairs time trials, road race and criterium.
