Elana has Spina Bifida, and is in Year 11 at Mosman High. She likes sailing in heavier seas because calm days are "boring"!

She says "I enjoy being a part of Sailability because sailing gives me a chance to get out on the water and experience something that a lot of my able bodied friends are doing and enjoying. I love the feeling of freedom I get when I'm out on the water because the expanse just seems endless and it is almost as if you can go anywhere and sail forever. Being on the water on a sunny day, with not a cloud in the sky and sparkling blue water is one of the closest things to paradise on earth."

Elana also told us a little secret "it gets me away from homework and the computer". Aha!
