What’s your first memory?

When I was four years old I can vividly remember being poised on the
rail of a sailboat in a distance race. I was sitting next to my mom.

The wind was howling at about 30 knots and the waves were crashing down
the side decks. I can still remember telling my mom that I wanted to go sit on
the low side. Here is where I got my first lesson in racing. She explained to
me how I needed to sit on the high side to help keep the boat flat in heavy

Since that ride on the high side my sailing life has grown to include teaching sailing and racing in various parts of the world.  



Whether its solo racing across the Atlantic, being a Clipper Round The World Skipper, working as a Commercial Skipper or teaching cruising and racing on Ellementary, you will probably find Diane on the water or running a course.
