  • 2.4mR Inland and National Championships, Rutland 27-28 July 2013

    Over the summer we started to develop a jib boom to help overcome some of the difficulties caused by my poor co-ordination. This would make the jib self tacking upwind and greatly reduce the number of hand actions that I need to complete downwind. I used the boom for the first time at the Inland and National Championships at Rutland where there were 14 entries. I borrowed a 2004 95% jib and struggled a bit for speed but sailed well in the shifty conditions. Some difficulties occurred with the boom on the first day which we partially overcame for the final day. My race results were; 9,9 DNC, 3, 3, 5 finishing 5th overall.

At the age of twelve, I was diagnosed with Freidriechs Ataxia, a degenerative genetic disorder which affects my nerves and muscle co-ordination. I have chosen not to research my condition as I would rather live for today and focus on the life I lead rather than dwell on what might be.

My passion is sailing and my aim is to win the World Championships and when sailing regains its Paralympic status, a Gold Medal.

A Paralympic sailing campaign is expensive and can only be sucessful with help and support from others. I am extremely grateful to those who are helping me so please check out 'Sponsors & Links'.
