Doug Pattison and his Speed sailing Exploits circa 1980

Although the sight of foiling 60ft yachts travelling at speeds in excess of 50 knots is now almost commonplace, have you ever taken time to ponder who were the early pioneers of speed sailing and what those early attempts at maximising wind powered speeds looked like?

Join us at 7pm on Friday 05-Feb-21 when our very own Doug Pattison (check out the picture!) will be giving a zoom talk on his own crazy speed sailing exploits of circa 40 years ago.
