Thank you so much everyone for your congratulations in so many forms since Saturday night from hugs in person, to texts and on Facebook, including the special release by
My congratulations again to all of the incredibly amazing finalists and winners at the
awards! I did try to see you all in person but my heartfelt well done to you all especially my good friend
on the “Lifetime Achievement Award”, the amazing
on the “Presidents Award” also with,
, Jonathan Harris and
for the “Disabled Sailor of the Year” and
on “Female/Male Sailor of the Year” respectively. I was bit tipsy by the time I got to interview our amazing
winners at the end of the evening, so not sure whether to post them just yet (apologies!), but a big congratulations to you all on an amazing four years and not just for Saturday!
Quite simply (but in way more words!), Saturday was an amazing evening to celebrate sailing in Australia, to see so many friends (some of my favourites were sharing the same table – best,
xxxx), and I was personally so happy to have my parents,
there with me, my two biggest supporters!
Thank you also to my amazing sisters,
and other “family” (you know who you are) including the amazing
and his family, who have been a partner in the business since the beginning and made it all possible.
A massive thank you to all of our company friends, especially
for the ongoing support over the past 11 years,
you are incredible at making me as efficient and somehow as stylish as possible on and off the water, and Optical Solutions Australia and Pipeline Drillers you have made it easier to do what I do tenfold in terms of technology xx
I do want to say thank you to all of you out there who give so much to our sport regardless of awards, sailing can’t exist without our shared passion for the sport that we love.
Feeling so thankful that I am able to be involved with sailing on so many levels – and so happy to have shared the adventures with you all including the recognition of “Sport Promotion Award” at the Australian Sailing Awards which is just simply amazing
Thank you for the continued support, thank you for sharing your own stories and I can’t wait to see where we can take the sport of sailing together.
