"Hold Your Course is a call made from one boat to another to keep sailing in the same direction in order to avoid collision. Women have a way to go and need to know where others are steering."
– Susan Ingham
Susan Ingham is a writer and researcher involved in seemingly disparate areas from international art to local activism, as well as sailing. Having majored in Art History at Melbourne University, travelling overseas to explore the art world eventually led her on a path that would open up a passion in advocating for environmental conservation and gender equity.
Her recent book, Hold Your Course, explores the history of recreational sailing for women, with Sydney as the focus, their experience providing a template for other female sailors, both nationally and internationally.
