  • RYA Sailability Multiclass Regatta Rutland, 20-22 July

    12 boats entered this regatta which was just one day and consisted of four races in a nice 12 to 15 knots of wind. I had good speed and won the first race. In the second race I had a big lead but, approaching the leeward mark an Access Dinghy appeared from under my jib. I think it rounded the mark and tacked straight into me. I could not avoid making contact with the Access dinghy with my jib pole, which bent. I could not get the jib in properly and retired from the race. We did not have time to fit another pole and so we removed the broken one and I had to sail the last two races without one. In the next race I lead for one lap but couldn’t hold off the boats downwind and finished 5th. In the final race I got a bad start and rounded the first mark 5th. I gained one place before the finish. Although I finished 5th overall (2nd Paralympic) I think I sailed well and had good speed which was pleasing. I must keep up my concentration and observation at all times!

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.
