Sailor Girl and the "Weekly Mirror"

Given the past few weeks, the Sailor Girl decided to bring back her "Adventures Weekly" video show and podcast while the world is indeed a very different place to what existed just one month ago. Justifiably she also chose a very different studio to broadcast from... at home... in her pool... and with red sails...

Adventures Weekly - 27 March 2020

Sailing News in 60 Secondsish is back - with the Bad, the Sad and the Good!

The Bad were a list of cancellations that Nic couldn't finish, the Sad was a tribute to John Fisher, or Fish, two years to the day of his passing.

The Good, was Sailor Girl's new "videos of the week" segment - including training inventions while in lockdown, and innovative sailing alternatives while we are dealing with the Covid-19 crisis.

The Sailor Girl goes for "a sail" with relatively little outside assistance while broadcasting from a Mirror Dinghy in her pool, Christens her refurbed Mirror named "Giggel" and then wraps up her show with her "Where are you" (without the bloody hell to avoid copyright) segment and a few positive ideas for the coming week.

Tune in next week, for another "Friday Night Twilight", the weekly news, and special guests to be announced...!
