Happy hump day sailors,

Out on my morning walk I was enjoying the fresh, salty breeze brought by the southerly that came through Sydney early this morning. It was a small reminder of how it feels to sail offshore, where the elements provide much of your pleasure or discomfort, and where we tend to be much more in-tune to the small changes and signals that help us understand what’s happening around us.

I, for one, am keen to get back out for an offshore sail. As a racing crew member the endless cancellations of these racing events has meant fewer opportunities to get out of sight of dry land. It’s pleasing to see that, at least for now, the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is still planing to to go ahead.

If you’re interested to learn more about weather, the ORCV has added some more dates for their upcoming online weather for sailors courses. Click here to find out more or book.

If you have any race or regattas you’d like to add to our event listing page (or cancellations you need to notify us about) please send these to

Enjoy this week’s stories and stay safe.

Until next week, happy sailing
Deb (MySail Founder)
