Sailor Talk

Wednesday, March 16, 2011 - 18:00 to 20:00

This month's Sailor Talk will feature a discussion by Sean Boily and Anthony Crupi on sailing with new families in Southeast Alaska, as well as a discussion on Anchoring lead by Michael Folkerts of the USCG.

 Sailor Talk is an open public gathering of people interested in sharing information about sailing in Southeast Alaska, sponsored by SEAS. Discussions, presentations and storytelling designed for anyone interested in the magical process of moving a boat through the water with only the wind. Topics range from how to make your sail boat safe for kids to cruising the outer coast from Juneau to Kodiak.

  Family Sailing

 "There is nothing like passing our love of sailing down to the next generation.  Sailing with kids on board can be both a pleasure and a challenge, and when everyone is happy it brings the richest reward – whether it is your own children or the children of others.  To promote family participation in the SEAS fleet, we are hosting a discussion  to share concepts, images, and stories from fleet members.  Whether you have a boat with kids, kid-guests, or just wondering what all the noise is across the water on that boat with the all the little monkeys on the foredeck, all are welcome to join in the fun and voice their own ideas, experiences.  Out on the water the fleet is family."

-Sean Boily


Anchoring is always an important part of feeling safe when boating, and really helps in getting a good night’s sleep when the wind picks up.  Michael Folkerts of the 17th district USCG will lead the discussion for us. So bring your questions on anchoring.
