Expecting more…

So lets think back to Friday the 30th January, that was the day we found out that Paralympic Sailing has been dropped from Tokyo 2020.

It’s really a defining moment for my sport.

Now sailing, especially disabled sailing is something that I’m really passionate about, I mean I’ve devoted over 12 years of my life to winning medals at the Paralympic Games. I’ve also been part of the Sailors Advisory council for over 5 years now, in fact, I am the Chairperson.

So you can understand my disappointment in the actions of ISAF and more importantly IFDS over the past few days. There has literally been a wall of silence.

Our sport is out of the Paralympics, Rio is the last shot.

Lets just let that sink in.
