Whilst primarily known for their expertise in boat insurance coupled with fantastic customer service, Haven Knox-Johnston have also been making waves in the boating community with their informative and interesting “From the Helm” Webinar series.  From “Switching to Lithium Batteries” to “Sailing Across the Channel and Cruising Northern France”, their recent webinars have gone down a storm with the live events “selling out” and thousands of people tuning in to watch the recordings on YouTube.

This upcoming webinar is proving to be no less popular! Tailored to a cruising yacht owner who wants to get more out of their yacht, it will equip them with all the knowledge they need to go from cruising their local waters to jostling for position on the start line of the Round The Island Race, or just a bit of Monday night racing with their local Yacht Club.

Paul Knox-Johnston, Marine Sales and Marketing Manager at Haven Knox-Johnston, said: “We are thrilled to share with you that we have secured an absolute gem of an expert to be the face of our latest webinar.  None other than Rob Gibson, author of the RYA book “Racing for Yachts & Keelboats”.  When Rob isn’t immersed in the world of racing, he’s imparting his wisdom as Principal and  Sailing Instructor at Poole Sailing, making him the perfect expert to guide boat owners into the world of yacht racing.”

Webinar highlights

  • Expert Insight – Learn from Rob Gibson’s wealth of experience and knowledge.
  • Interactive Q&A Session – Get answers to all your burning questions.
  • Comprehensive list of topics – From learning what essentials you need to enter a race, to mastering race day etiquette, and everything in between.

Whether you want to get into racing as an activity to enjoy with your family, or perhaps your competitive streak makes you look longingly at those boats leaving their berths on a Sunday morning to go and take part in some Club racing.  Whatever the reason, racing your cruising yacht can be immensely exciting and create memories to last a lifetime, whilst at the same time also helping you to improve your boat handling skills.  And though taking those first steps into racing your boat may seem daunting, this upcoming webinar is designed to answer all the questions you might have, giving you the confidence to make the leap.
