Serena grew up sailing dinghies on the south coast, first sailing out of the Hamble River when she was ten on her first cross channel race to Deauville. She was a member of HRSC in the eighties when she bought up her young family locally. She then started a programme of sailing activities for children, Splash, at a neighbouring club and has also been an active committee member in various roles over the years. She has been a flag officer at a London sailing club with responsibility for training. Now retired from teaching, and semi-retired from education, she has returned to live in the village. She currently sails a First 31.7 and races a Sigma 38. She has extensive race officer experience and was a volunteer for the 2012 Olympics at Weymouth.
