A little about Lucy: "I was born with Photophobia Nystagmus, this caused me to have loss of sight from birth. With some vision and thanks to my parents for always pushing me I have lead a full life.
From the age of 3 I swam and reached a high Level breaking two British Records but from the age of 17 thanks to my dad I took up sailing and never looked back. Sailing gave me a sense of freedom a sport I had a natural feel for.
I have been part of the Great Britain Blind Sailing team now for many years becoming World Champions 7 times. I am currently World Champion in both Blind Fleet and Match Racing, and look to encourage all in to sport, I head up GBR Blind Sailing charity which I am very proud of and the success it has had. The charity provides monthly training for all, from those dipping their toe into the water for the first time to those that want to train for a National or World Championships. The charity relies heavily on it sighted volunteers who have give up their weekends. We are a self-funded charity holding opportunities around the UK."
Viking Recruitment and The Maritime Skills Academy will be in attendance at this wonderful event.
