Happy hump day sailors,

For those lucky enough to get out on the water these days, you’ve made it half way through another work week and getting closer to another weekend of (hopefully) lots of sailing.

For the exceptionally lucky, you may even be getting out for a twilight sail tonight. I’ll be out on Sydney harbour for the CYCA Wednesday Twilights Series – if you’re around, give me a wave!

The Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV) is running some more of their much sought after online navigation courses. These will focus on learning to use Expedition tactical and navigation software, with a Master Class from highly experienced ocean navigator Will Oxley. You can find out more here or click the links below to book your spot today.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
