Thanks to our volunteers for a successful Going North Seminar!

CYC-Portland just hosted its 3rd annual “Going North” seminar. The event was well-attended, with approximately 50 racers and cruisers on hand.

Steve Rander of Schooner Creek Boat Works kicked off the evening with an informative presentation on how he approaches preparing his yacht for offshore passages. Frank Colistro followed with a race strategy session for Oregon Offshore competitors (much of the content reflects Timm Lessley’s strategy for California Girl, so it’s worth studying!). The event concluded with a cruiser's view of the Salish Sea. Eric Rouzee shared some of his favorite cruising grounds in the region with a picture tour, and these hidden gems will now be a little more popular for it.

Special thanks to Eric Hopper and West Coast Event Productions / Pure Space for providing the venue!
