Ice On Utah Lake, Free Winter Sailing Seminar

"What is the international distress voice signal, and what is most likely it's origin?"

If you have a chance to get down to Utah Lake State Park this winter the ice formations are fascinating and ever changing.

January 19th (only 7 more days!)
Offshore Passage Making by Doug Hendricks

Douglas Hendricks has sailed across both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.  He has sailed in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Tahiti, Thailand, Hawaii and the Bahamas in addition to many years sailing up & down the California coastline. 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 Doug will be teaching this spring.  Whether or not you are interested in sailing the oceans, this will be an interesting and informative seminar.

The seminars will be held at the Utah Lake State Park Visitor's Center.
Thursdays  7:00 - 8:30 PM
