Sailors Talk - April 13th

On April 13,  fourteen skippers were present along with other members and those interested in learning by crewing and helping with maintenance this summer.

After the introduction of old and new members, and SEAS guests, the discussions began.  Our old friend,  Brad Tibbs, S/V Freebird, interjected a wealth of information from his years of experience as a machinist.

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."
