Speakers

Deb Fish: Bellino
Deb has been JOG racing since the early 2000s, initially chartering Independent Bear with a crew of 10 reprobates. She started short-handed sailing in 2007, jumping in at the deep end with her first AZAB, and was hooked. Deb owned the sunfast 3200 Exocet for 4 years racing 2h in JOG and solo with SORC. She loves racing offshore, and has completed the Fastnet, Middle Sea Race and Sydney Hobart within the last year. Highlights of her short-handed racing career include winning the SORC championship in 2015, completing SORC’s solo round the (Fastnet) rock race, and winning the 2h class in RORC in 2017 & 2019 as coskipper on Rob Craigie’s sunfast 3600 Bellino. Lowlights include hitting a whale, and being awarded Normandie solo’s garden gnome for the biggest mistake in a solo race. Picture is Deb after finishing the 605M solo round the rock race. Deb is definitely not still bitter about finishing 12 minutes behind Jeremy.”
Richard Palmer: Jangada
Richard first started racing with JOG in the mid 1980’s, especially enjoying destinations like Fecamp and St Peter Port. Since then over 60,000nm has passed under the keel. Moving to 2-handed racing with Jeremy for the 2009 Fastnet he has since raced twice around Britain & Ireland and threes time across the Atlantic, all double-handed. Still making mistakes and still learning!.
Jeremy Waitt: Jangada/ Lady Penrose
I have been a watersports fanatic since the age of 13 having been given windsurfing lessons for my 13th Birthday. I have since been a professional watersports instructor and equipment tester. More recently since 2009, I have grown a passion for double and single-handed racing. Mainly but not exclusively sailing with Richard Palmer on Jangada. With Circa 30k short-handed sailing I have been ironing out mistakes, sadly I appear to make plenty more and my favourite phrase is 'every day is a learning day'. In what feels like a lifetime of sailing I have been lucky to enjoy a few days on the water where nothing has gone wrong, I think it was in 2014. More recently I am nearly famous for falling off a boat mid-Atlantic and can, therefore, give a first-hand account of the salinity of that area as well as what its like to have your life flash before your eyes. Richard and I have won a fair few races and come close on many others. I am the current holder of the 'Anticipation Cup'.
