Nicole Sirois and Mark McCuddy have headed up a group of volunteers from the Oregon Corinthian Sailing Association and CYC Portland to bring a one-day Safety at Sea seminar to Portland. Bob Schoonmaker of Seattle will be hosting the event on at Portland Yacht Club, and Bruce Brown from US Sailing will moderate. We're told he puts on fantastic seminars!
This class will comply with the 2015 requirement for the Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race. Please note that if you are seeking certification for Pacific Cup, Vic-Maui or other international races, a two-day seminar will likely be required, and this class would not meet that requirement.
We will keep you informed of further updates and sign-up information. Feel free to pass this information on; everyone is welcome, and this will be a very valuable educational experience not only for offshore racers, but also for cruisers and people still anticipating their first time sailing in the ocean.
