    After some great training, I felt very fast in my new boat and everything was feeling perfect.

    Looking back at the last day of training I felt absolutely shattered after only one of about six training races with H, Bjørnar and Dee. I put this down to sailing for a long time. I had two days rest before sailing with the Germans. Everything was looking great and I was testing the main man Heiko (who won the event).

    I then took four days off before the event started. Every rest day I seemed to sleep less and less and felt worse.

    On the first day of the event, I had 3 hours sleep, headache, ear ache, no energy and a sore throat. In the two races I came almost last after some some sailing skills I never want to see again. Day two was much of the same but this time my ear had burst and I could barely pull my sails in...Excuses are in place now!!!:) I didn't compete after that. I went to hospital and the doctor quickly diagnosed it after he peered into my throat as a nasty bacteria flu thing that in his words "Wipes patients out!!!"

    He has given me antibiotics and said total rest. This kind of messes up my plan of training for the rest of the time I have out here but hopefull after 7 days I will be okay to do the second week. I finished 15th out of 16. 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.
