Last chance for Safety at Sea in the Pacific NW before Oregon Offshore!

The Sailing Foundation will be hosting a 1, 2 and 3-day Safety at Sea Seminar on Bainbridge Island, February 22-24.  The full seminar costs $335/person, and will provide you with the hands on skills to keep yourself alive. For complete details on the agenda and pricing, visit The Sailing Foundation's website.

If you would like to join the group traveling from Portland to Bainbridge, call Darroch Cahen at (971) 295-7070, or by e-mail at darroch at frye dot com.

CYC strongly recommends that at least two crew on each boat racing the Oregon Offshore attend one of these seminars or its equivalent. Next year this recommendation will become a requirement, so you might as well get your crew qualified now!

Was considering doing the offshore this year - have had multiple years of Offshore and Swiftsure experience. Also have been in-the-water trained in the Navy for at-sea issues - same in the oil and gas industry for offshore drilling/helicopter transport. Honestly though, if you make this class a mandatory requirement, I all never again consider going on an Offshore again. Please reconsider making this a requirement.. Thanks
