Happy New Year! Free Winter Sailing Seminar - January 19th


"For centuries, sailors have gathered on deck at night to view this magnificent cloud phenomena, shining against the otherwise black sky and reflecting on the still sea. What term is used to describe this cloud?"

Offshore Passage Making by Doug Hendricks

If you've ever thought about sailing across an ocean then this seminar is for you. You'll find out what "blue water sailing" is like and what skills, equipment, and preparations are needed to make the voyage safely. This seminar is a condensed version of the Offshore Passage Making class that one of Bonneville's instructors, Douglas Hendricks, will be teaching this spring. Then in the summer Doug will take select crew (could it be you?) on his 42' sailboat for an unforgettable week-long ocean passage from Virginia to Bermuda. Even if you aren't able to join the Bermuda trip in the summer this seminar will still be of great interest to people who are contemplating sailing out on the big bad ocean.
The seminars will be held at the Utah Lake State Park Visitor's Center.
Thursdays  7:00 - 8:30 PM
