2002 was a great year, as it was my first taste of oveseas International competition and I picked up the Aloha Girls title in the North Sea Cup series. It was also my first taste of the IMCO class, and managed to take the Ladies Championship at theYouth and Masters in September, to add to the UKWA Aloha Girls title.

The competition at the international level is strong and I was pleased to find a new sponsor in Harpers Fitness and Leisure, as it gives me access to all their gym facilities in my local area, so I have been able to maintain and improve my fitness level. The UKWA series had some memorable events in 2002, from no wind at Rutland to storms on the Isle of Wight, and I managed to trash kit at both.
Looking forward to 2003, the mild winter has enabled us all to maintain our time on the water, so race fitness at the start of the year should not be a problem. The changes to the UKWA Race Tour scoring and with the new youth and junior classes, brings the prospect of it being another great year.
