At this time of year I usually teach sailing at Buckland Beach Yacht Club, and for Sailability Auckland, a great programme designed for people with disabilities. My background is in Olympic sailing, and I still compete every year at the Womens' National Keelboat Champs.
I have enjoyed some time off the water to get fitter and to put together learn to sail videos for you. I am passionate about getting people on the water and enjoying this amazing sport.
If you want to take up a new challenge but you need a little inspiration and confidence to get on your sailing journey, please get in touch!

And finally here are a few ideas to inspire you to get on the water!

⛵️ Try Virtual Skipper or Virtual Regatta - a virtual programme where you can sail and race around the world!
And just for fun…

I am a New Zealand sailor who learned to sail in the beautiful Malborough Sounds and then went onto represent NZ at the 2000 Olympics.
