PDs Stuff

PD Member Since: Just over 2 years ago (it feels like forever!), I just had to join… Orange & Purple are my favourite colours
How I Got Into Paddling: In a corporate dragon boat crew in NZ… can’t remember much of my first season tho – those days are a tequila induced haze!
Favourite PD Moment: All of them… but at the moment watching our fabulous new paddlers enjoy their first paddling experiences on and off the water – it makes you realise what our club and sport is all about
Three words to describe PDs: All the F Words! “Fantastic”, “Fun” and the best of “Friends”

Other Stuff

Role Models, Heroes & Heroines: Paddling wise Gav and Linda and also my Mum (god love her!) and anyone who has desire and passion to achieve their dreams and is willing to make it happen
When not paddling most likely to be found: At the beach, Swimming, hanging out with friends – anything involving good food, good company, a few bevies and a good laugh (more often than not at my own expense). Wherever possible catching up on sleep!

Three people you’d like to invite to dinner:

Freddie Mercury, Robbie Williams and another cute boy to keep Freddie occupied!
Superstitions (Paddling or Otherwise): My Bandana fetish is probably the closest thing to a paddling superstition… that and being punched by Claire-Dy before important races. Apparently it helps us win, I can’t help but think it’s a coincidence!
