Some young people really take to the sailing part of the Trust. That’s what happened with Emily. Being registered blind has impacted her life, she says, but she deals with it by throwing herself into a whole load of activities to prove to everyone she can still do them.
Emily recently completed her RYA Day Skipper course and will be joining the Trust for Round the Island Race this year. Two of the Trust's skippers who helped Emily along the way join the conversation too. Andy was on Emily’s most recent trip and spoke to her about going for her Day Skipper. Ruaraidh was on the same trip and it was at his London School of Sailing that she took the course.
With Emily also hooked on dinghy sailing and training for Blind GB match racing, we just had to invite her on to talk about her achievements.
