WEEK 4 Despite no longer being an instructor, Matthew managed to squeeze one more newsletter out of me (gotta do what the #BossMan says) before I pass the torch to Sinclair and Ruby.  These past three weeks have flown by, and with the month of July already coming to a close, sailors are checking off … Read more
