Jobson and Reid at National One Design Sailing Academy

by Dane Reid on 21 Feb 2014
Diane and Gary sharing stories - Jobson-Reid at 1Design National One Design Sailing Academy http://www.1dsailing.com
A night with Gary Jobson and National One Design Sailing Academy.


I can’t think of a better place to be on a cold winter’s night than in a dimly lit room, listening to the poetic stories of Gary Jobson. This is the kind of brilliant thinking being brought to us by National One Design Sailing Academy, who was also kind enough to allow me to warm up the crowd by regaling stories of Mini Transat racing and pushing a 6.5m mini through the Atlantic Ocean in miserable after miserable conditions.


Gary shared stories of the past, present and future of sailing, highlighted with fantastic video. His talk spanned adventures that people undertook running sailing schools around the world as liveaboards to sailing school and college racing, right up to the most recent America’s Cup and the technology behind the foiling AC boats.


What a great night! Looking forward to more great things from National One Design Sailing Academy!

The AP was raised on shore, but was lowered within the hour as PRO Simon James and his formidable on-water team tracked down some good breeze to get the fleet racing. Soft but consistent, the 8kts of wind allowed two races for the racing fleet and one for the cruisers.
