After watching our amazing Olympic Games triumphs, tears and jubilations as a TV couch potato, I feel a more active role coming upon me during Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week.
On Tuesday I will be out on the press boat between 12 and 2pm with my trusty compact Panasonic Lumix camera dwarfed by the huge lenses of the serious sailing Press photographers. So do keep an eye on my Blog/Twitter/Facebook to see what sailing moments I manage to capture…….weather, waves and jostling lenses permitting!
I am very excited about this Friday. Fireworks in the evening and the majority of Skandia Team GB, including Gold Medallist Paul Goodison, Britains' windsurfers Nick Dempsey and Bryony Shaw and 470 champions Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark in Cowes. But the highlight of the day is my chance to sail with one of these Olympians! My sailing ability is very basic and my land legs are infinitely better than my sea legs- but what a fantastic opportunity!
