World Cruising Club at Annapolis Boat Show

The various cruising rallies--Caribbean 1500, Atlantic Cup, ARC Europe, and World ARC come up here from time to time. Those of you planning to go to the boat show">Annapolis Boat Show have the opportunity to meet the World Cruising Club folks and find out more about their events.

I just got this email from the WCC, so I thought I'd pass it along in case anyone is interested in talking with them...

Re: World Cruising Club at Annapolis Boat Show

Hud,
I didn't get a chance to see Rick or Julie at the boat show on Saturday, however, I did take my wife to the World Cruising Club Ocean Sailing Forum and for me it was a great success: My wife really got into the idea of sailing as part of a larger group, like the in the Caribbean 1500.

The Ocean Sailing Forum was held in a conveniently located hotel about a 15 minute walk from the Annapolis Sailboat Show and cost $17/pp, which included a free ticket to the Show and breakfast. Breakfast, a give and take with some very experienced sailors and a free ticket to the show was well worth the price of entry.

The Forum was thorough and well paced and what really grabbed my wife's attention was hearing the panel discuss the idea of fear, fear of the unknown, wind, waves and weather.

Knowing that the World Cruising Club rally's are designed to help sailors before, during and after the journey gave her more confidence than I could have hoped for.

All-in-all, the Forum, the Sailboat Show and weather made for great day.

Yado.

And here I am, in California, while my (soon to be) new (for me) boat is on the hard in Anapolis. I couldn't even get to the show.

Re: World Cruising Club at Annapolis Boat Show

Thanks for the note, Yado. A lot of folks find the Carib1500 to be a great way to get into offshore sailing. During the pre-rally prep phase they always do a series of roundtable discussions for the women. Women who've sailed to the islands share their experiences and feelings on a number of topics that help the first-timer know what to expect. It's a very informative and supportive setting for someone who is experiencing that inevitable "fear of the unknown".
