Sporting Background:

Libby has sailed since the age of 4 and progressed through the RYA Junior and Youth scheme representing the UK in Numerous European and World Championships across a variety of classes For 5 year on and off Libby campaigned a 470 aiming for the Olympic Games but with a change of crew and the desire to work in the weather she joined the Met Office. Through this experience she has a great understanding of the dedication needed to compete at the top of the sport.

Since then Libby has sailed on a variety of boats from cruising on Beneteau to racing a many different J-Boats, including successfully winning Black Group at Cowes Week. This has helped her identify the enjoyment and success that can be gained from having better understanding of the weather and not getting caught out whether you are competing training or just enjoying you sport.
