To promote the appreciation of sailing and foster a community and culture committed to advancing both sailing and sailing education in the Juneau area.
The 2017 SEAS racing season is upon us, so it's time for our annual 'Racing Rules and Tactics' discussion.
This discussion will focus on the most fundamental rules, our starts, skipper's meetings, SEAS specific rules, and ratings for the SEAS Cup, the buoy races, and the Spirit of Admiralty.
Of course, time allowed we can have discussions about specific rule questions and sailing situations.
Hope to see you there.
With the amount of gear and options available on what you should or should not have, fitting out a sailboat can be daunting. There will be an element of "show and tell" on safety gear and the format of the evening will be more of a "conversation" than a "lecture". There are basic safety items we should all be aware of. Sean will discuss the Safety Sheets that each skipper can use to create a customied inventory of their safety gear, where it is located, etc. Wade will discuss items that should be incorporated into the boats ditch bag.
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.
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.
