Jackie sailed as a child in her father's boats around the UK and Europe. 'I love boats,' says Jackie. However she was never involved in competitive racing until after her injury in 1994 when she lost her leg in a car accident in Africa. However, she began paralympic sailing and earned her way up the ranks as a 2.4mR sailor and knows now that she has the ability to succeed at the highest level. Jackie sails with her husband John McRoberts. They were awarded the 2013 Sail Canada Team of the Year. John and Jackie competed at the 2016 Paralympic Games and brought home a silver medal for Canada
