G’day sailors,

Well, it’s back into lockdown for many sailors across Australia, and with that comes the inevitable cancellations. The Boating Industry Association (BIA) has already made the decision to cancel the Sydney Festival of Boating, which was originally scheduled to take place  from 29 July to 1 August.

If you have any other news of cancelled (or better yet, not cancelled) events that you’d like to share, please email this to news@mysail.team so we can include these updates in next week’s newsletter.

Check out the latest sail racing news and stories from around the web below.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
