At IntoYou, we are all about trying new things and living the fullest life possible. So when one of our clients invited his trainer to go sailing on a 16ft skiff, how could we refuse?
Jackson has been training at IntoYou since he, Clare, & Clare’s dad, sailed together for a season 5 years ago. Clare left the sport to have a family, and took up windsurfing, while Jackson caught a ride on a National Champion boat. Jackson has since honed his skills and moved out with a boat of his own, achieving 6th overall, sailing in the 2016 16ft skiff nationals.
He continued at this level until Feburary 2016, where he found himself without a crew. So the “old team” was back together for one race, and even though it was clear how out of practise Clare and her dad were, Jackson was good-natured until the end and everyone enjoyed themselves.
After the race, Jade hopped on board for the sailing experience of a lifetime, with a huge swell coming through the heads. It was a bumpy ride, and you can see she loses her footing a couple of times, but we had some lovely rides and everyone came home safe!
