Jan is an accomplished boater, a keen supporter at Swan Upping with a number of different craft over many years, and a stalwart of the Trad. She single handedly dismantled and rebuilt the cabin roof of her 22' cruiser, Knave of Hearts, in a restoration that earned her three 1sts and a Runner-up in four different classes over four years in the early 2000s.
Jan also won the TVBC's Boat Handler of the Year award for a hair raising single handed trip to St Katherine's dock, and from there to Lechlade AND BACK again, also single handed.
Although not officially a member of the Committee, Jan has played a key role from the Commentary Tent since 2016 as the "Voice of the Trad". Aided and abetted by husband Mike, Jan's depth of knowledge, charm and easy informative style give the Trad's Festival weekend its familiar congenial atmosphere.
