Hello sailors,

Emirates Team New Zealand has experienced another capsize while out training, but thankfully reports are that no one was hurt.

The sport of sailing is making more progress towards gender equality with an announcement from the Sailing Champions League Asia Pacific that their 2021 event will require all teams to be 50/50 female and male. This week’s news also include a story about a new global women’s sailing festival, the 2024 Olympic’s mixed two person offshore sailing event and the launch of solo around Antarctica sailor Lisa Blair’s new book.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
