Skiing behind her usual distinctive pink and blue boat she was drawn on the front row of the starting grid but disaster struck on the first turn.

The teenager hit the line of the Belgium skier next to her as they came round the buoy,  fell heavily and lost nearly a lap before restarting back in fifth position.

She was able to get back up into third place before the end of the 30minute race but was never able to catch the leaders.

Sam will be competing in the next round of the British Championships at Brixham in two weeks.
