Happy Wednesday sailors,

If you’re planning any offshore racing or passages, I suggest you check out the ORCV’s online Fundamental or Intermediate Navigation Courses, or Navigation Masterclass with leading offshore navigator Will Oxley. Navigation is an important skill for both skippers and crew, especially if you’re heading offshore. I have just booked my spot! You can find out more on our website.

Thanks to Neil from Above & Beyond Boating for the mention in their podcast this week. The topic is ‘taking others on your boating journey,’ and if you are not familiar with the AABB podcast you can check it out here.

Don’t forget to join me tonight at 7pm AEST for Dockside with Deb – this week my guest is MHYC Commodore Peter Lewis who will talk about the new Breakout Series 2020, as well as other aspects of getting back to sailing after COVID-19 and club strategy. 

With sailing starting to open back up, we have new races and events being added all of the time to the MySail event listing page. If you would like to get your club’s events listed here, send an email to so we can help you out.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
Deb (MySail Founder)

Matt Steven Sailing Undercover Wins Young 88 Two Handed Champs on Countback

Last Sunday saw the running of the second stage of the aptly named and “covinnovative” Mount Gay Rum 1-2-3 Series. Two handed, windward leewards with no extras was the order of the day.
