As a professional sailor I desperately wanted compete at the Sydney 2000 Olympics.  I had already done quite well and had won a few national regattas; but had not had much success at top level.  The Olympics is a serious challenge and I was no likely candidate.  But I just loved sailing the exciting new boat that had been chosen for the next Games; and I was fanatically determined to sail against the world’s best sailors on one of the most beautiful stretches of water anywhere: Sydney Harbor.  So I set out on the journey with my sailing partner, neither of us having any idea what a roller-coaster ride it would be.
