Hello sailors!

I hope everyone is keeping safe and well.

With physical sailing events still off limits due to the lock-down requirements, there is limited news to report. However, it’s great to see the ingenuity of sailors around the world with the online sailing events, eSailing and plethora of funny sailing videos being created. 

If you want something to look forward to as far as a physical sailing event, I suggest joining us tomorrow for our 6th weekly online catch-up. This week we’ll talk with Olympic Gold medalist and co-founder of the Asia Pacific Sailing Champions League, Mark Turnbull OAM. He’ll talk about how you can get involved in the next edition of the Sailing Champions League. Click here to register for this free event.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
