Offshore Sailing School founders Steve and Doris Colgate are producing #DocksideChatswithSteve from their home on the Caloosahatchee River in Southwest Florida for a little sailing-oriented entertainment to those who may also be homebound during the COVID-19 crisis.

The short vignettes are based on the couple’s sailing experiences over the past 56 years of owning and operating the Fort Myers-based company. The stories the Colgates are sharing will be featured in their memoirs to be published in 2021.

“We’ve sailed and raced boats, and hosted more than 100 sailing vacations for our graduates, all over the world,” Chairman Steve Colgate said. “The sailing lifestyle continues to bring us so much joy. And I’m so hopeful that those who watch the series will be inspired to get out on the water as soon as possible when current tensions ease.”

Starting March 30, new episodes will premiere every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on Facebook at www.facebook.com/offshoresailingschool. They will be shared at www.twitter.com/Sailing_School, www.instagram.com/colgate_offshore_sailingschool and www.YouTube.com/offshoresailing.

The Offshore Sailing School has a location at the South Seas Island Resort on Captiva.
