Happy Wednesday sailors,

I hope everyone is staying safe and well. It’s good to see some of the restrictions in Australia and New Zealand are starting to ease, if only slightly. The second story below covers what’s changing in WA and QLD, and you can find out more about what’s allowed in your local area on the Boating Industry Australia or Maritime New Zealand website.

Last week we asked for feedback on what topics you’d like to learn more about so I can look to cover these in future editions of Sail Racing News or our weekly online catch-up ‘Dockside with Deb.’ Thanks to those who provided some feedback already – if you didn’t get a chance last week, click here to do this now.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
