Free Seminar - Boat Prep for Cat 1 Offshore racing

This may be spam, but it is a free event that no one is making money off of. If the post needs to get pulled I fully understand. Disclosure - I am on the committee.

Free Boat Preparation Seminar:

The 2016 Annapolis to Bermuda Race Committee presents a free boat preparation seminar on October 31at 9 AM at the Eastport Yacht Club. The seminar will cover how to prepare your boat to comply with the offshore safety rules for Category 1 Sailing. The seminar aims to take the mystery out of sometimes confusing requirements, will describe the inspection process before the race, and will also provide tips and information on the best, easiest, fastest and least expensive ways to bring your boat into compliance with the requirements of the 2016 A2B race.

The seminar is open to any skippers, crew or individuals with any interest in racing, preparing to race or even thinking about racing their boat in an offshore Category 1 event. Cruiser who want to be fully prepared to sail offshore in safety are more than welcome. The event is focused on the A2B race but is useful for any offshore sailor. Of course we may try and convince you to sail to Bermuda with us!

Please note that the 2016 race is now extremely cruiser-racer friendly, with autopilots allowed in every class and powered winches also being specifically allowed. Attendees are more than welcome to meet committee members upstairs after the event to discuss their plans and questions over for lunch and a beer at the bar. No free lunch be they are going to have a cheap lunch special I think.

Where: Eastport Yacht Club, 317 First Street, Annapolis, MD
When: Saturday, October 31st. 2015 starting at 9:00 am.

No fee required! but please register if possible by sending your name, and boat name if already entered, to as soon as possible.

Presenters are Captain Mike Lehmkuhl and professional surveyor Alex Zahl.
