At the age of 5, I started scow sailing with my Dad which was mostly made up of expeditions along the Lymington River to the town quay to buy ice creams! I also started to take the helm of the family Contessa 26 (Rosina of Beaulieau) with my Dad and Grandpa Rogers.
My first sailing commitment was to the Royal Lymington's Wednesday Junior Sailing which I raced down to after school (or rather my Mum did). I was also a member of The Salterns Sailing Club. These both lead me to the Optimist dinghy and my first ever event, Lymington Youth Week in 2008. I have been in Oppies ever since and at the end of July 2015, I stepped up into 29ers skiff, the feeder dinghy into the Women's Olympic 49er fx class. So far it has been an amazing journey with the foundations for my love of sailing now firmly set.
The aim of my blog is to provide you with an opportunity for you to pick up on my sailing story and gain an insight into my passion for competitive sailing. There is also a serious side to my blog which involves raising funds, as I have not choosen the cheapest of sports.
I sincerley hope you enjoy following my sailing story.
