Tips for progrssion
Focus, train hard. Make the most of every sailing opportunity - I am a full time Osteopath and have to use every chance I get to improve. I also do a lot off the water training, swim, bike, run, suspension training and pilates - Sowhen I get the chance to sail I can make the most of it. Most memorable session: Has to be breaking the world 500m speed record in 2012 in Luderitz - amazing!
