Converted to an online webinar.
First one: March 19 at 7:30
Standby! Berkeley YC is closed to group meetings due to Coronavirus. We support their prudent move!
We will report out our plan shortly. If we can organize a location for it, we may try a webcast webinar.
Our THIRD preparation seminar will be March 15 at Berkeley Yacht Club.
This seminar will focus on our intermediate-range preparation items. Things that we really need to be thinking about.
Sail Selection North Sails' Own Seadon Wijsden, a skilled navigator and sail expert, will talk about what sails you should take, when to use them, and how to fix them underway
Liferafts Well, perhaps you have not lined yours up yet, but we'll talk about selection, stowage, and maintenance. It's the most expensive gear we hope you'll never need.
Provisioning and Water Commodore Michael, after eleven and a half trans-Pacific passages, knows a few things about provisions. Whether it's freeze-dried on a super fast boat, or steaks on the transom grill, there are decisions to be made to maintain a happy healthy crew
Going Green We're teaming with Sailors for the Sea to deliver a greener regatta and promote environmentally sound boating practices. We'll talk about the program and some tips for you.
Medical and First Aid John Taussig, of Back Country Medical Guides will provide an overview of your preparation for, prevention of, and response to medical problems. EMERGENCY CALL practice. We've arranged for medical support coverage during the race. We'll demonstrate how it works with a call to the GWU emergency doctors!
Return Trip Advice How you gonna get the boat back? We'll have Jim Quanci (green buffalo) a few veterans of the return, and of boat shipping, here to share advice, and experiences.
