Camilla Hickish, aged 17, from Bodle Street Green, joined sailing world record holder Dame Ellen in the J.P. Morgan Asset Management ‘Round the Island Race’ at the Isle of Wight last Saturday, June 25.

A student at St Leonards Mayfield School, Camilla took her exams last year achieving top marks whilst facing intense medical treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma at The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton.
