Off shore master classes

This one day masterclass is drawing on the unique offshore skills that Lisa had developed while she sailed solo around Antarctica and around Australia.  Lisa will be sharing her first-hand account of her demasting, building a jury rig, and transferring fuel from a container ship as well as storm survival techniques such as use of drogues and heaving too.

Lisa has faced down 15-meter waves and 80 knots of wind alone in the Southern Ocean and because of her risk assessment and disaster management, she lived to tell the tale.  This is a first-person account offering a wealth of knowledge that can be applied as a guideline to personal cruising and keep your vessel and your crew safe on an ocean voyage. Lisa is delivering these courses Australia wide to a yacht club near you working in partnership with Sistership and Pacific Sailing School. Find out more here.
