For all you land-locked sailors, we have the lovely Lisa Blair joining us this evening at 7pm (AEDT) to talk about her solo sailing adventures and how she manages self-isolation.
Grab a drink and a comfy seat and join us for this free interactive online event where you will hear Lisa’s story and have an opportunity to ask her your questions.
To log into the event, click here (you’ll have the option to download the BlueJeans app or simply join from your browser). There is a limited number of spaces which are available on a first-come first-served basis, but if you are not able to access the meeting we’ll also be streaming this live on our Facebook page and you can watch and post your questions there.
As far as sailing news goes, besides an endless list of cancellations, it’s getting a bit bleak. However, we have found several videos and a great podcast to help you get your sailing fix.
Until next time, stay safe and healthy!
