A risk assessor by day, Ali is a cautious soul and that's apparently why she's at home pointing her boat down a river and hoping for the best. She believes that emitting high pitched squeaks every time her boat is off balance will keep it upright; a theory proved completely without merit on several occasions.

Likes: to giggle. A lot.

Dislikes: being told that she's holding her paddle upside down and back to front.

Greatest moment: landing upright at the foot of a massive (as it seemed to Ali) drop on the Teign

Worst moment: bumping down a long and very rocky rapid sans boat and having the whole thing caught on video. Also on the Teign.

Ambition: to clean up her appalling language when she's battling whitewater (although fortunately no-one can hear the swear words while she's underwater)
