Miss Kylie Forth

Miss Kylie Forth, Blind Sailor

Kylie has been totally blind since before she was 3 years of age losing her sight to cancer.

At age 9 she also lost her leg to the same disease.

She is a very successful woman pioneer in WA blind sailing as she skippers a yacht and competes internationally successfully winning medals.

Each year she successfully fundraised thousands of dollars to finance her team's international sailing competitions. In 2013 they competed in Italy and Japan, bringing home medals on both occasions.

She has contributed to her community through her strong leadership and determined spirit.

She is dedicated to grow the number of blind sailors in Western Australia and passionate about encouraging more young blind people to sail believing in the capacity the sport has to grow their self-confidence and independence.
