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.
