Our October November issue – Man on a Mission.

Dave Selby is a man after our own heart. His mission is to get more people sailing by showing them boats and sailing need not cost the earth or be the preserve of the super rich. We joined Dave in his Sailfish 18 on his way to publicise his mission at the Southampton Boat Show this September.

And we turned off the GPS and did it the old way with a compass and chart!
