Christmas RYA £425 5 Email Wild Spirit

For the last 7 years Paul has raced in the Sydney to Hobart starting Boxing Day. He has skippered or helmed teams winning Class, Division and first Tasmanian boat home, but this year he is staying in the UK.
Before this we used to run a RYA course (or you can just sail and about half did this) starting Boxing Day evening and finishing early afternoon on New Year’s Eve.
It is Christmas and the days are short but we do a few night hours as well and still have time to pop and have a pint in a carefully selected little Pub or 2.
We have diesel and electric heating and we will be in a Marina every night so plenty of hot showers etc.

With enforced Annual Leave it is a good opportunity to do something constructive and possibly avoid certain relatives.
