    Story

    I am a 14 year old female sailor. I qualified for the Laser 4.7 National Team on first attempt in October 2016 for the 2016/2017 sailing year. Throughout this year I have competed at many UK events trying to keep my place in the national team, were I stayed in the top 6 girls in the country to keep my place. In April 2017 I competed in the European championships in Murcia, Spain representing Great Britain. I placed 24th overall , 2nd GBR and 10th under 16 out of 105 people from 23 different countries from around the world. Recently I competed in the wold championships in Niuewpoort, Belgium representing GBR, were I finished 50th overall 4th GBR and 20th under 16 out of 115 sailors from 30 different countries around the world. This month I competed in the national championships in Abersoch Wales were I came 11th overall 3rd girl and 8th under 16 out of 49. Next year I would like to be a part of the national team again and compete in the World and European Championships. These are in Poland and Greece. Long term ambitions are to move into Radial Squad and represent GBR in this.

    Financial difficulty are stopping me from achieving my goals.

      Last weekend November 4th and 5th, I travelled up to Grafham Water sailing club for the National Laser Inland Championships. The wind ranged from around 7- 20 knots with large shifts, creating challenging conditions. After an inconsistent first day I ended the weekend 2nd girl once again. This means that I have qualified as 2nd girl for the European Championships 2018. I would love to go however I will be unable if I do not raise the money.

      At weekend I competed at Hayling Island along with 40 sailors from around the country. Saturday with light winds and strong tide I finished the day 1st girl and 10th overall. Sunday the wind was around 10 to 12 knots for the first two races with a strong tide pushing the fleets over the line, resulting in several general recalls. The 3rd race the wind dropped to around 5 to 10 knots, I sailed up the left side of the course but the wind shifted and died resulting in a 21st (my discard). This left me 2nd Girl and 9th overall for the competition.

      On September 23rd and 24th I competed in the laser 4.7 squad selector in Paignton were I fineshed 2nd girl and 10th overall, earning my spot in the Uk laser 4.7 squad 2017/18. Unfortuanetly I was unable to accept my place due to funding. However, this has not stoped me. This weekend I was training in Poole Bay and Harbour with some of the squad. Hopefully we will raise enough money to enable me to compete at the laser 4.7 european championships in Greece. Many thanks to all that have donated.
