Sailing and cruising are the “raison d’être” of Grand Large Yachting group which, with about 500 employees in France, builds top-of-the-range yachts of international renown, notably under the Allures Yachting, Garcia Yachts, Gunboat, Outremer and RM Yachts brands, for sailors who sail the world’s seas in monohulls or catamarans.
This is why we are pleased to announce a new season of Blue water sailing Webinars — The digital meeting place for Blue water sailing enthusiasts — Proposed by Grand Large Yachting Group in association with Yachting World.
These Blue water sailing Webinars are currently based on six totally free, english spoken sessions calling on the expertise of recognized speakers.
These sessions will take place between September 23rd an December 2nd, 2021.
For this, we have called back some experts that took part in the previous seasons as Pete Goss (sailor, author and speaker), Christian Dumard (weather & routing specialist) or Loïc Heliès (airplaine pilot & cata owner). We also have the pleasure to welcome new talented speakers as Nikki Henderson (skipper), Martin Oudet (medical emergency doctor) and finally Knut Frostad (Volvo Race sailor and Navico CEO).
