Sailor Talk

Sailor's Talk and PIYA requirements

 SEAS had a really good turn out tonight for Sailor's Talk.  I didn't count heads but I would imagine there were a dozen people there including new boat owners as well as new crew members.  Jim Mahan gave a presentation on the upcoming Spirit of Adventure Around Admiralty Race with some lively discussion by those of us who've done the race and those who want to do it.  Our Commodore, Sean Boiley, went over the PIYA safety requirements for the SEAS Cup series and the Admiralty race, which are located at this link.

Sail Care and Maintenance

In advance of the next SEAS Sailor's Talk event on March 21st from 5-8 pm at the KTOO t.v. studio, here's a really good article on sail care from the folks at North Sails


Proper sail maintenance is easy and takes little time, but it can make a big difference in the life and performance of your sails. Whether you have new racing built from aramid or Dacron cruising sails that are several years old, a little care can maximize the value of your investment.
