My Sailing Journey

25 March, 2021 @ 20:00 - 22:00

Starting as a reluctant teenage sailor and missing amazing opportunities, club member Ruth, at the age of 30, discovered a passion for sailing and mixing it with being a single parent, working and living on a remote Scottish island. Her story tells us of her experiences on the water from crewing Albacore dinghies, Watch Leading on a sail training vessel (STV) in the Skagerrak, photographing European Albacore Championships and creating a seasonal sailing diary for an STV.
On moving south she found some sailing friends in land locked Surrey and completed her Yachtmaster Offshore qualification in Gibraltar.

Please Note – This event was to be shown in February but had to be rescheduled due to technical problems.
