This is a week for meeting people. This evening, Wednesday, is the first event of the new Sailing Enthusiasts in Zurich meetup group that I have set up. If you are free, please do come along to Barfly’z at Gotthardstrasse 21 in Enge (behind the Tonhalle) at 19.30 and meet other people with an interest in sailing.


Last night was the January event of the Professional Women’s Group of Zurich, where I had a trade table. It was quite a buzz to put up the RYA Training Centre sign for the first time! It attracted a lot of attention and thanks to everyone I spoke to. To the lady with Competent Crew who had to dash off before we could chat, I’m sorry I missed you and please feel free to give me a call.


I must also take this opportunity to thank Marc at Yachting Systems chandlers in Enge for his assistance yesterday. It’s great to know there’s a knowledgeable, full-service chandlers right on my doorstep in the middle of a landlocked country. I’ve never gone wrong there and I look forward to building a great working relationship.
