There is a very active group in Southern California

Download the brochure and you can see all the seminars they have.
It's coming up fast, February 1. I wish I could attend; maybe next year for me!
I have heard it is terrific, and given its longevity, I'm pretty sure it is. Gail Hine runs it and she is also on the board of the Women's Sailing Foundation.
We have a smaller scale, similar event in Marblehead, MA on the east coast
of the US in June, hoping that it will grow as big over time. I'm going to take my boat to that one (I'll be doing some shorter electrical seminars there, on the boat). I'll send the first mate off on a fishing
trip to keep him occupied that day.
