Next Singlehanded TransPac Seminar

  • The Singlehanded Sailing Society invites you to a seminar in preparation for its 2018 Singlehanded Transpacific Yacht Race. The seminar, Medical Provisioning for Crossing an Ocean Alone in a Small Boat, will be presented by singlehanded sailor, Dr. Todd Olsen, on Wednesday 18 April 2018 at Island Yacht Club. We will have the doors open by 7:00 PM and then the seminar will follow at 7:30. 
When you told your doctor that you were going to sail across the Pacific Ocean alone in a small boat, what was the response? 


So here’s your chance to ask all those difficult questions and not have them included in your medical record, which might or might not become available to the FBI in the next data breach. 

This seminar will also cover the topic of provisioning. Cliff Shaw will tell you what he carries aboard Rainbow, his 10m Crowther custom catamaran. This one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQzHZviYaDA

Ruben Gabriel will describe the provisions on a Moore 24. hahaha. Yeah. A Moore 24. This one’s for you, Rusty! 

See you all there!
