'Great achievements involve big risks, and equally big sacrifices,but also,the realistic belief that one can achieve their goals...Passion keeps you on your journey,and works on an intangible level to draw those things towards you.'
Wind Driven - The Barbara Kendall Story
Barbara Kendall is the best known and most successful windsurfer in New Zealand history having competed in her fifth Olympics this year.
It’s incredible that she’s still competing, at top international level, when most of her competitors are in their 20s. It’s a harsh environment, and a gruelling physical challenge. Her years of experience in racing, tactics, knowledge about wind and tide conditions,equipment and board handling skills play a big part in her success.But the most important factor of all is her desire to win.
