With everyone being encouraged #stayhome you too can keep your sail trimming finely honed like Doyle Sails specialist Willem van Waay

Time to go back sailing will be here before we know it! Staying home now is important to preserve the health of everybody and to be back to what we love the most in reasonable times.

We'll be sailing again soon.. and while we look forward to that moment.. we imagine we are sailing

Sailing rockstar Willem Van Way teaches us that sometimes a bathtub, a Doyle sail and a lot of imagination can save us from tough moments in quarantine!

And we also learned that communication on board is very important, as well as cleanliness in the cockpit and some sun screen on your face.

Stay home, stay safe and be back sailing soon!

Act like Doyle specialist Willem Van Waay: #stayhome and don't stop dreaming
