Sailing (Women's 470)
Partnering Penny Clark in the 470 boat, she finished sixth at the 2010 Sail for Gold regatta in Weymouth and eighth at the World Championships - results they were delighted with given the troubled start to the year they had had.
Previously a member at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex, she is now permanently based down in Weymouth.
She had back problems that affected her performances towards the end of 2009.
