15 minutes of fame

My 15 minutes of fame (well probably more like 10) are about to come my way – I’ll be talking about Sail YSL in an interview on The English Show on Radio X tomorrow (Tuesday 1 September 2015) evening! Whilst it’s only available over the airwaves in...

Time to act like Greeced lightning

“Summertime and the living is easy” ….. However if you feel like you’ve been having it a little too easy – or maybe not easy enough – why not try a bit of sailing with us? Don’t worry, it will still be as easy as you would like it...
