First time on a boat for Kirsty (Kizzy) Skinner was just 4 ½. Along the way she has been part of the first all girl crew to win the Scottish Schools Keelboat Championship, part of the runner up crew in the 2011 SB20 Worlds, sailed Farr 40s (Voodoo Chile) and 45’s and lots of other things besides, done 4 or 5 worlds and shore crew on a VOR. If you have a Spinlock Deckvest, that’s her on the swing-tag.
Sadly for all you beaus, she becomes Mrs. Gray in a few weeks time and currently runs a Hobart sail loft with future hubby Stu but still gets out on the racecourse on an SB20 from time to time. Gets a few bullets along the way while she is at it I hear. – Anarchist Shanghai.
