This two hour moderated panel discussion, run in association with Yachting World magazine, is designed to be an informative introduction offshore cruising and will cover topics like preparing your boat, selecting equipment, sail handling, life onboard, crew management, route planning and weather. The panel will be made up of industry experts and experienced cruising sailors, providing a wide range of opinions and experiences.

Women Cruising: Fears, Fantasies, Facts and Fundamentals

Hosted by Liza Copeland and Sarah Curry
Sunday 14 September 2014, 09:30am to 11:30am
Grand Harbour Hotel

Come for a fun-filled, informative morning with other women and learn about all aspects of cruising whether voyaging around the world or crossing the Solent. We have all had fears and felt inadequate about certain aspects of boating but there are some strategies to overcome them that are good to share, so that you too will embrace the love of the cruising lifestyle.

The aim of this discussion group is to provide an inspiring learning environment where women can openly discuss thoughts and feelings, challenge preconceptions, and meet others who are 'in the same boat'. The event is open to women only - a factor that may not matter to all, but will be an important part of the seminar for some.
