Tonight on Dockside with Deb I’m interviewing life-long ocean sailor and navigator, Julie Hodder. Julie will tell us how she got involved in sailing, what sparked her love of ocean racing and share some tips for budding navigators. Click here to find out more and register to join the conversation.
This week we’ve shared stories on double-handed sailing, tips on tactics, trim and tuning, an update on Tokyo 2020 (now 2021) and more.
The last story is a sad one about someone who has been caught with their pants down, and paid the ultimate price. Having a pee off the back of a yacht is a common activity for many male sailors, but as this article demonstrates it can be a risky activity, so stay take heed and stay safe!
Until next week, happy sailing,
Deb (MySail Founder)
