Here comes the weekend! This weekend I’ll be sharing my Saturday with Broad Reach Foundation for Youth Leaders. We’re taking a workshop with the Canadian Wildlife Federation called Project Wild. As a sailing instructor I am going to learn how to incorporate wildlife and water into my classes. As a sailor I am going to learn more about the beautiful oceans and it’s creatures and how to be more considerate of them when I am racing. I’ll be doing it all alongside the students that I have been teaching Pleasure Craft Operator Card this winter!

Want to warm up and take your Advanced Cruising?  Come to Tortola with me and take your Advanced Cruising on a Delphia 40. I’ll be teaching the course while we sail from Tortola to Miami. There’s a second Advanced Cruising course then from Miami to New York….all at the end of April. Send me a message or call me to get the details and book. 416-878-2677

Congratulations to all the winners last night and to Sail Canada for such an amazing event!

Terry McLaughlin was the winner of the Rolex Sailor of the year award. Truly a well deserved moment And no…..I didn’t die in my high heeled shoes, but I could often be found with them stashed under the table and not on my feet!

Yikes!

Tonight’s mission……to not die while wearing these!

Yes, there is a dress to go along with it. I can’t remember the last time either were cracked out of the closet!  Looking forward to toasting Canada’s awesome sailors tonight at the Sail Canada Rolex Awards    :-)

Learn basic keelboat racing with me at Humber Sailing and Powerboating Centre, starting this Saturday! I’m offering a Sail Canada Basic Keelboat Racing theory program. You even get a credit toward the summer on water course and an educational tax credit!


Ah, just the thought of it reminds me doing training in France :-)

How often do you get to share the stage with a sailing hero like Gary Jobson?  Well last night I got that once in a lifetime opportunity and did just that.  National One Design brought us an amazing evening celebrating sailing’s past, present and future.  Gary shared some brilliant life experiences along with his most recent adventures covering the last America’s Cup.  His poignant stories gave us a chuckle, but also gave us some very interesting food for thought.  Graciously Gary shared the stage with me, giving me a chance to share my story with the 100+ crowd in the room.  It’s always fun to share my story with others….thank you for the wonderful opportunity Mr. Jobson and thank you to National One Design for putting it all together, but most of all, thank you to all of you who came out in the snow for the fun evening!

Big exciting night tonight!! I have the privilege of sharing the stage with Gary Jobson at the National One Design presentation tonight. The topic is “Sailing, past, present and future”, and Gary is certainly a hero to share stories. From winning the America’s Cup to the Fastnet race, Gary has raced, written and commentated a lifetime of sailing. Can’t wait for tonight! Buy your tickets online and come hear the stories!
