Coming from a sailing background I have grown to love One Design racing. I decided to step off my hardboard and onto Naish One Inflatable for the day to compete in the only One Design SUP racing in the UK.
The National Championships consisted of a 100m sprint, a 750m race and a 3km race.
The sprint went well for me as did the 3km race, which I finished about 3 minutes ahead of second place female. I got second place in the 750m race, losing the race to an Olympic sailor. Everything was going well on the water but we finished the race with a 100m sprint and Sophie could certainly out run me.
My overall results were enough to give me 1st place overall and I feel very privileged to be representing the UK in the Naish One World Championships in September.
