About Sue

My Story

Sue Bannister early memories of crewing a Cadet sailing dinghy at the age of five, at Hayling Island Sailing Club, are of exhilaration – a simultaneous mix of nerves, tension and great excitement.

Sailing quickly became a passion and part of her DNA, spending her childhood around boats, bobbing about the Solent in a yacht on the south coast of England with her parents, two sisters and Ollie the dog.

Thanks to Sue’s early years of mucking around in boats, she blossomed into an experienced racing sailor, competing in sailing championships at local, national and world level.

About My Work

The idea for a children's’ boating story has been a few years in the making and has now arrived in print, sharing with readers Sue’s love of having fun in boats. Her other passion is skiing, so perhaps a ski adventure book is on the cards…“Rope’s Off on the High Seas” is Sue’s second book. She has previously published “No Sugar My Journey My Choice”, a biography about her recovery from primary and secondary cancer.
