Happy hump day sailors,

Well, what an interesting last few months it has been! Throughout all of this, I’ve really enjoyed speaking with some of you, and some amazing sailors, each week on Dockside with Deb

This week we have one of my favourite tacticians joining us – Steve McConaghy. He’ll regale us with stories of his extensive sailing career and provide tips for the budding tacticians amongst us. Click here to register to attend these free weekly online events.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
