What a year it has been. I have had so amazing experiences, learnt so much and had many great times on the water. 2017 sure hasn't been easy but I am proud of my achievements and have loved every second of it.
Looking back to last week I was out in Spain for the Palamos Christmas Race, a fun and competitive international competition held near Barcelona every December. A great event to do it is very easy to get to and has a lovely atmosphere to it. In the end I managed to finish 5th overall, a nice step forward and encouraging looking into next year. Check out my week below:
2017 has been the best year of my life, check out some of the highlights from my Instagram feed:
I also have made a short 2017 highlights video, showcasing my sailing from January right through till December as I trained hard and competed at numerous national and international events. Check it out below:

Looking onto next year I already have a very busy and productive calendar and look forward to exceeding my goals, fulfilling my dreams and hopefully bringing me one step closer to the Olympics.
Hope you all had a very merry Christmas and have a happy New Year!
