  • Para Sailing World Championships Melbourne, 26-3 December 2015

    My build up for this event was not ideal. Having sailed the SKUD with Megan I had only raced two events in the 2.4 over the summer. With my older boat on its way to Australia two months before the event I decided to bring forward the project to modify my old boat and fit a similar jib boom. Unfortunately this project took longer than planned and when finished the weather was not kind to us and so I did no training in the two months before leaving for Australia.

    We got out to the venue early and got some good days training in. Despite a rest period, unfortunately I was tired and never really recovered for the event.

    I was very disappointed to finish 24th out of the 48 entrants. My speed was excellent at times and I got some good race results, but there were several areas I need to improve and in particular, being better prepared, starting, light wind speed and downwind settings. Results

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.
