Weather routing is used extensively by the racing fleet and is now increasingly accessible and a great tool for cruising.

Denis Doyle is co-ordinating the evening. Denis is currently preparing his and Lynne's new Sextant, an Xc42, to head south for Hobart 2013 for 6 to 8 weeks of cruising in the waters of Tasmania. All attendees are encouraged to plan to stay for dinner at the bistro following to exchange ideas and forge plans with other Cruisers.
