Christine got the sailing bug on a school trip and extensively enjoyed sunshine cruising for several years.

After trying to escape winter in February she ended up on the Caribbean 600, followed by the Channel Race and after a serious case of ‘fear of missing out’ the one and only Fastnet experience.

What she likes that sailing is unpredictable, you have to improvise and while you are sailing the only thing you think about is sailing.

When she is not racing she enjoys taking her friends out on sunshine cruises, dreaming about the next sailing trip or bending her ligaments into unnatural shapes while doing Yoga.
