Jackie Gay is a sailor, a writer, an editor, consultant and mentor. She moved to Canada in 2010 to get married. She lost her left leg in a car accident whilst driving across Africa in 1994. It was a massive adventure that went horribly wrong… but then led to another great adventure on the high seas, culminating in a silver medal for Canada in Rio sailing with her husband John, whom she met on the paralympic circuit. Now she is headed out to sea again and cannot wait to be part of this amazing journey.
