Warren's Words of Wisdom

We have been very fortunate in securing the wisdom of Warren Rock to run rig setting skill sessions and sailing rules talks after our sailing at the lake. The audio in the videos sometimes have background noises since they are recorded live lakeside and the resident corellas do not obey "Keep Quiet" signs! The sessions are held monthly and alternate between rigging skills and sailing rules as the subject matter. This page will thus be updated as and when these videos are produced.
