  • IFDS Worlds Halifax, Canada 15-24 August 2014

    At the pre event briefing the Race Officer warned that the forecast for the week was not good with the wind unusually blowing across the harbour rather than up or down it! The wind was shifty and unpredictable. The sea breeze often fought with the gradient wind. There was lots of weed about. The race officer abandoned 4 races when I was lying 6th (two when we were on the final downwind). I finished 6th in another but was Black Flagged (over the line within the last second before the start). The final race was the only one with steady winds from the sea! I had good speed and sailed well finishing 4th. I finished a very disappointing 20th overall but basically I didn’t sail well enough in the difficult conditions. The top 5 boats overall were the top 5 I expected before the event, so they managed ok.

    On reflection, I believe that I was capable of achieving my personal aim of finishing in the top eight, possibly even the top 5 and am really looking forward to the Open Worlds. In the mean time I will be focussing on continuing to improve my starting.

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'.
