WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO CONNECT WITH THE OCEAN?
I have always felt more comfortable when I’m by the sea. I like being out on the water any way possible, whether it’s on a boat, a surfboard, or swimming or diving. Being able to share that with my children has made it all the more special.
IF YOU WERE A MARINE ANIMAL WHAT WOULD YOU BE?
A Shark – as my two boys think they’re cool!!
SHARE A FUN FACT ABOUT YOU AND SAILING:
I think I first went sailing when I was six weeks old and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since!
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST SAILING ACCOMPLISHMENT?
My greatest accomplishment was probably winning the 2014-15 Ocean Race, as it was both the realization of a childhood dream and the result of many years of hard work and experience. I’m also proud of the fact that I have managed to dip my toe into many different areas that our sport has to offer, and I always enjoy new experiences and challenges.
