  • Garda Trentino EUROSAF Olympic Week , Italy, 6-10 May 2015

    The boat we had chartered was not the best and not really race prepared. The sails were well used, the helmsman’s seat was not canting and the boat had a couple of dings in the hull. To some extent this was good. It meant we had to find out lots of basic settings.

    We had just one days training and then straight into the racing. It was pretty much the first time I had sailed with someone else and used a spinnaker, so there was much to learn. We lacked boat speed upwind but were soon quite quick downwind. We had some gear failure and improvements to make on the boat so many late nights. Over the week we generally improved our race results finishing with a 5th and 3rd in the lighter winds. We were 9th overall out of 11.

    Just two days at home then we went to Rutland to receive 3 days training in how to sail and look after the UK SKUD that we had chartered for Medemblik and Weymouth. Then it was the ranker at Weymouth, in my 2.4mR and then straight off to Medemblik!

ABOUT THIS WEBSITE

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'.
