From conquering the southern ocean to competing at the top levels of elite sailing and everything in between, these four women are blazing trails and setting new records in the world of sailing.
The MHYC Steering the Course Women's Sailing Festival Virtual Breakfast was held on Friday 8 October and heard from Nina Curtis, Lisa Blair, Alice Tarnawski and Bryony Gregory.
Nina Curtis: Olympic silver medallist Nina Curtis has previously competed in the Ocean Race (previously called the Volvo Ocean Race) and is currently representing Australia in SailGP.
Lisa Blair: With three world records already under her belt, Lisa Blair is preparing to set off again in December with the aim to set the solo and unassisted record to sail around Antarctica.
Alice Tarnawski & Bryony Gregory: Alice and Bryony are the first-ever all-female double-handed entry in the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. The pair are planning to tackle the notoriously challenging race with the added difficulty of trying to prepare during COVID lockdowns.
If you weren't able to attend the virtual breakfast or would like to watch the interviews again, you can view the recordings here.
A huge thankyou to MHYC Women's Sailing Representative Deborah Dalziel for organising and hosting this great event.
