After the regatta, Travis and Breanne attended the two-day Talent Search training camp hosted by the Queensland Academy of Sport.

Travis then competed at the Queensland State Laser Championships at the Port Denison Sailing Club in Bowen, with 79 lasers competing in the three-day event Travis sailed well and came away with the U19 Division State Championship Title, he won two of the seven races over the three days and placed third overall.
