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.
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
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.
