    Sailing Talks - Anya Haji-MichaelI've set up a series of Zoom talks, every Wednesday at 1930, slightly targeted at the younger generation, but with something for everyone, including an update from the RYA's Chris Simon on the new racing rules. The talks are open to all clubs, ages and classes so do share the details via WhatsApp, Facebook, or postcard.
