Mike has taken us along on a few of his BVI presentations in the past,
so you know what a great job he does.

Last year, Mike decided to get a bigger boat...but that took him to the Great Lakes.
Follow his thought process and procedures for this sometimes
(most always)
complicated process.

Starting in March, our newsletter "info" will be coming to you LIVE,
from the decks of "Chasing Stars", as she heads for the Panama Canal...
and beyond.

Chasing Stars is the Julian Family, 46' cat, leaving Florida, March 1, for Brisbane, Australia. They have asked for participation/support, to produce a blog that we can all enjoy
as they sail the high seas. If you have any of the equipment list below, please consider donating/selling, to producing images that will teach and inspire for a lifetime.

"We are still looking to acquire video equipment to document this epic trip and produce YouTube videos for all to enjoy. Plus to help with homeschooling. We would appreciate any guidance or leads that the group may have on the following":
  • Drone (more portable the better)
  • Microphones - shotgun and lapel
  • Action cameras (GoPRo or other)
  • DSLR or other main camera for video
  • SSD hard drives, SD cards
  • Video editing guidance
Contact Chris Julian for more info. 801-694-3205

We're now taking reservation for our
on-the-water courses.
Give Louise a call to schedule your time out on the water.
