Video: Nothing Stops Fiona Wylde!

Fiona Wylde: Turning Dreams into Reality


We ran across this amazing video from Starboard’s Fiona Wylde on Facebook and it’s just too amazing not not sure. Nothing, not even Type 1 diabetes stops this waerwoman from doing what she loves.  What a role model for all of us.

Here’s what she wrote about it on her page:

“It’s been three years since I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I would be lying if I said life was easier with Diabetes, but I sure have learned many lesson through this disease. Most importantly, Ive learned to take care of my health and to put importance on the things that I love most.

I love the water and sharing my passion for the water with others! Competing is one of the ways that I have learned to share many experiences, trips, and have met many friends competing on different world tours for windsurfing and stand up paddling.

Regardless of what hurdle gets in my way, whether it be health, life, or whatever it may be, I hope to continue to follow my dream and encourage others to do so!

There are so many people who have encouraged me and helped me along my journey! I thank all of you for your kind words and time!

Let’s keep having fun, loving life, and turning dreams into reality! See you out on the water.

With love,


Right on, Fiona, right on!
