G’day sailors,

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there getting their kids into sailing, and getting out sailing themselves. I was in trouble with my mother the other week when she mentioned she had not seen our weekly newsletter come through (I was too busy enjoying some sailing myself at Sail Port Stephens, oops!) It’s good to know that at least one person is reading these – so this one’s for you, Mom!

If anyone’s looking for some great online sail training, the CYCA has been putting out some insightful presentations on a variety of topics including East Coast LowsAIS and Satellite Safety Systems and more. You can check these out and register for upcoming sessions on their website.

Enjoy reading the latest sailing news and stories.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
