My name is Kate Ledgard, I’m in my 20s and have primarily cruising experience as well as club racing, I am looking to increase my experience of competitive sailing. During Cowes Week 2018 I was on the foredeck of a first 40; in club racing I’ve trimmed in a J20, and on a MG335. I also sail dinghies competitively. I’m small but strong and eager to learn.

Look forward to hearing from you,
