    Duncan Wells: Stress Free sailing

    7 for 7:30Cotswold Club

    Duncan Wells is an RYA instructor, Principal of Westview Sailing School and features writer for Yachting Monthly, Sailing Today and SAIL magazine. He produces the Westview Sailing, RYA shore-based Day Skipper and Yachtmaster video tutorials which RYA students find invaluable as a study aid to their courses. Duncan has been on the water one way or another throughout his life, from skulling and coxing eights at school, to racing Three-Quarter Tonners in the Channel Islands, to Dorothy Lee, his beloved Hallberg Rassy 352.

    By definition couples sailing alone have to do everything for themselves. They leave the berth, set the sails, helm the boat, trim the sails, navigate, anchor, pick up mooring buoys, enter harbour, moor up and all without the help of any extra crew. So they need to carry out these manoeuvres efficiently and effectively, with as little physical effort as possible. Duncan is here to tell us how…


    A. Slow braised Lamb shanks in a red wine, rosemary and redcurrant jus, served with herb and garlic dumplings and winter vegetables

    B. Fillet of Cod on a bed of ratatouille vegetables in a tomato compote alongside a garlic and parsley mash

    V. Wild rice served with ratatouille vegetable topped with griddled halloumi and dressed with a balsamic reduction (vegetarian option)

    Selection of desserts
