    Winter Training Series: Heavy Weather Sailing

    Bad weather at sea can generate fear and uncertainty, sap morale and lead to poor decision making. But it doesn’t need to. This course will help to prepare you to have a well thought-out strategy to see the storm not as an ordeal demanding superhuman strength, skill and endurance, but just as a different type of weather.

    Instructor: David K

    Location: Zoom


    Members may use one (1) FVSM for this class. Please check the FVSM spreadsheet to make sure you have FVSM(s) available before choosing either of these pricing options.

    Thomas Brooks has been planning a club trip to the BVI tentatively for July 2021. This month, Thomas will present the details of the trip.

    Monthly Membership Social meetings are held the third Monday of every month (3rd Tuesday, when Monday is a holiday), except in December when the annual Holiday Party & Awards Dinner takes the place of the regular social meeting. We normally have dinner together, hear from a guest speaker, and then conduct a business meeting. All year long, it's a good time!


    Happy Hour and networking starts at 6:00 pm and meeting starts at 7:00 pm.  We recommend that you come early to have some food and drink and hang around with other sailors.

    Do you or someone you know have a unique or interesting insight, skill, or experience related to some aspect of sailing you would be willing to present to our membership? Please contact our Membership Commodore for more information
