  • ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres, France, 20-26 April 2015

    My confidence was high after Palma and I was looking forward to racing all the top 10 boats in the world, bar maybe one who wasn’t there. It was a shifty and difficult week but I felt I was sailing really well. In the first race of day 2, I lead at the windward mark and extended all race to have a very comfortable lead. Unfortunately the race committee had changed the course and I missed the extra dog leg mark for the finish! Lesson learnt to always check the course on the committee boat! With my discard gone I made a split second decision on the final day which resulted in me getting a penalty and a 16th place. Even with this and if I had won the race I should have, I would have finished 4th overall and beaten both Helena and Megan. Real progress!

    Whilst in Hyeres Megan asked me if I wanted to try a SKUD with her. With the uncertainty of 2020 this seemed a good opportunity for me to have a shot at 2016 and to increase my learning and experience in a new class. Within a day it was agreed that we would team up and do 3 events, then decide if we wanted to carry on and if the ‘team’ wanted us to. The team wanted us to sail at Garda and so it was just a week later that we arrived there looking for our chartered Polish SKUD.

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.
