The SouthEast Alaska Sailing Club is sponsoring a special screening of The Weekend Sailor, a feature documentary about the Mexican yacht Sayula II in the first Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race in 1974. A Mexican team, inexperienced and led by self-made millionaire Ramon Carlin, defied all odds and won the inaugural race, known today as the Volvo Ocean Race. Narrated by Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, the 74-minute film screening will be followed by a live Q&A session with Director Bernardo Arsuaga.
To promote the appreciation of sailing and foster a community and culture committed to advancing both sailing and sailing education in the Juneau area.
SouthEast Alaska Sailing Club (SEAS) is celebrating it's annual winter bash. V's Cellar Door will have a customized menu (to be provided early next week). Awards for the 2016 season will be presented along with discussion of the upcoming season.
It's time for the SEAS Spring Party! It will be held on Friday, May 6th, from 5:00-9:00 pm in the shelter nearest to the parking lot (#1) at Sandy Beach.
This is a great chance to get to know your fellow sailors, find a boat to crew on or a crew for your boat, and just hang out and swap stories over a beer and a burger. Bring something to grill or share. Hot dogs will be provided. If you bring beverages, remember--no glass bottles are allowed.
The April Sailor Talk will be this Thursday, the 28th. It will take place at 6 pm at NorthWind Architects (126 Seward St). The discussion this month will revolve around the upcoming racing season, including both the SEAS Cup and the buoy races that will be held during the Maritime Festival. Information will be presented about rules, safety, communication, and other factors necessary to have safe and fun races.
If you are interested in crewing for the Admiralty Island Rally this summer (June 18-June25), this will be a good opportunity to talk to skippers and find a boat.
