It is the end of the year and we have certainly had an interesting one to say the least as it started great but that only lasted a short time. It won’t be hard for 2013 to be better than 2012, bring on 2013!
Boxing Day once again I was on the Southern Line with my father. I also had the Sailing Chix doing our live coverage. We had a great day on the start boat and our next door neighbour joined us who is a non sailor and had a ball! Lots of photos and video from the day are on the DeckHardware Facebook page. Dad is now down in Tassie taking my place as I had planned to go spread the DeckHardware word and catch up with my Tassie based friends. He is having fun getting friends to call me from his phone to guess who they are. Liesl you sound NOTHING like Dad hahahaha.
With all the troubles of this year I have also been very lucky to have some amazing friends support me. I am especially grateful to Nix, Nic and Lindsay who I started an amazing adventure with this year that has kept me going. Our radio show. It has been so much fun to get out there and promote our amazing sport with friends who love it as much as I do. It certainly has taken up a fair amount of our time but the rewards have been well worth it. Sailing Chix Rock!!! I can not wait to see what adventures 2013 take us on. Nix is already down at Dee Why now setting up for an outside broadcast to bring in the New Year!
The second highlight of the year was definitely all those late nights during London 2012 cheering on the Aussie Sailors! You are all awesome and I am so glad I get to call so many of you friends and support your journey. Bring on Rio!!!
Thanks so much to those who have stood by me the last two years. It has been a rollercoaster and I have learnt a lot about me and others. Bring on 2013, as I have had more than my share of bad luck and I am ready for the good!
