I started my sailing journey at the age of 8, where I joined my local club, Felpham sailing club, after trying sailing on an open day. Over the next two years, I got involved in many training sessions in order to learn how to helm a boat, and sail with others who were a similar age to me. I joined in on Friday night youth sessions to build my skills and confidence more, quickly progressing on to taking other new sailors out and helming for them. 

In 2018, during our youth week, I raced for the first time and haven’t looked back since. I started off racing my pico, however quickly realised that I loved racing and to continue this, I needed to leave my pico behind. With some help and advice, I moved into the RS Tera and completed my first event – the Regionals at Queen Mary sailing club.


In 2020, as I continued to learn about the Tera and progress with my racing knowledge, I joined the Rooster team and one of their ambassadors. Through this, I was supported with many opportunities to do new things, and was encouraged to sail at my best and enjoy the sport, wherever that may take me. I have continued to be part of the Rooster team as both an ambassador and a Rider since 2020, and I am proud to say that I am still part of the team now.

Over the pandemic, I left the Tera class and moved onto Lasers, where I have been competing across the country for the last 4 years. I sailed mostly in the 4.7 fleet, due to my size and weight, joining the London and South East regional training group for two years, before moving onto different training events as I progressed. Throughout this time, I have continuously used kit from Rooster, including sails and ‘boat bits’, their 6mm Polilite mainsheet being a particular favourite of mine. Just recently, I have started to make my transition into the RS Aero class, where I hope to become more competitive in the 5 rig, with a good line up of events coming up over the summer. As always, I will be looking to improve the set-up of my boat with new Rooster parts, and the advice from the team.
