The guys at North Sails are hosting a live Webinar 'Let's talk Solo', this Tuesday April 7 at 2.00pm, specifically aimed at the Solo sailor.

Charlie Cumbley, who has more titles than I've had puddings will be co-hosting with fellow North Sails hotshot Tom Gillard, himself no stranger to a major title or ten. Whilst Tom has had a large amount of success in two person classes including Fireballs and Scorpions he has been able to transfer his skills to the Solo with some notable wins, his latest, just a few weeks before lockdown at the Noble Marine Winter Championship.

NSCA Class President Doug Latta will be putting the questions to the team, if you have a Solo related question which has been burning a hole into your brain since the country went into lockdown then please email it to Tom Gillard at

You can join online via bit.ly/2wUP29q

Please remember to have your video off and be muted when you log into the meeting. Please be sure to download the Zoom app in advance if meeting on your phone or computer. A computer is recommended since there will be visuals.
