Who was Olivia?

Olivia lived most of her 20 years in the New Forest, in the village of Milford on Sea.

Her death came as a shock to everyone, all the more so because of her kindness, selflessness, and courage, which shone through in everything she did.

Olivia achieved many things in her short life and always tried to be the best that she could be.

She started sailing Optimists when she was 5 years old, moving into Lasers, 4.7s and Radials. She sailed internationally in GBR teams in all of these classes.

As a gifted pupil at Bournemouth School for Girls, she was fully involved in her school community leading to her being chosen as Head Girl.

She did all of this and much more with an infectious smile and a willingness to help others.
