World Champion!

I have been training with Clare since September 2007, when I qualified for the Australian Youth Squad in Sailing. Yachting NSW referred us to Clare to get a program to prevent future injuries as a result of all the training we were about to embark on.

Since then I have trained every week to increase my strength and correct some muscle imbalances that gave me pain.

My job as a crew on a Hobie 16 got more competitive as I got older because it is usually a boy’s position. I have to work harder than the other crews to maintain and increase my strength, as the boys seem to be getting stronger simply because they’re boys!

This year we won the worlds!! I was so excited because we had worked so hard! Next, world domination!
