The third webinar in the Bluewater Sailing Webinar series covers the key topic of technical boat management - register below

Don’t miss the third in the Bluewater Sailing Webinar series by Grand Large Yachting, in association with Yachting World. This Thursday’s webinar covers the key topic of technical boat management, led by Loïc Helies.

Helies is well known to Outremer catamaran owners as he has shared his extensive experience during regular training sessions for sailors planning to bluewater cruise their Outremer.

Helies, his wife and three children have already completed an around the world cruise aboard their Outremer. They are currently setting off on a new adventure by participating in the Grand Large Yachting World Odyssey – a three-year rally around the world leaving later this October.

When not sailing, Helies is an airline pilot. In the webinar he will explain how the methodology and processes he uses as an airline pilot – where absolute reliability is key – can be used in the context of bluewater sailing when it comes to technical boat management.

Don’t miss this highly useful webinar, live from Saga, his new Outremer 55.
