Ocean Sailing Podcast producer David Hows shares his thoughts and tips on PHS club racing, solo sailing and planning a successful regatta. David races his 1992 Beneteau 445 'Ocean Gem' and discusses how to succeed at a club racing level when you are racing under the PHS system. In preparation for the 1,300nm Solo Tasman race in 2018, David undertakes his first solo passage with a 580nm solo delivery trip from the Gold Coast to Hamilton Island in Queensland, Australia in preparation for his 2nd Audi Hamilton Island Race Week.

David shares his advice on how to put a regatta campaign together if you are a racer/cruiser to ensure you strike the best balance between racing and having fun.
