Penny Whiting, the sailing queen of New Zealand, has completed 50 years of sailing. She started sailing when she was 19 years old and she set to sail on the Waitemata Harbor for the very first time. She has taught the art of sailing to over 33,000 people over the 50 year old sailing career. This is a remarkable achievement by this woman and she has decided to celebrate this achievement in a big way.
Penny will be celebrating the 50th birthday of her sailing school at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron on 19th October 2016 from 3 pm. She has asked as many students as possible to make it to the grand celebrations, and to make the event a huge success. She certainly deserves all the adulations and the support she is getting from her students and her well wishers. (more…)
