Long Distance Sailing Seminar, 18th August, London

'Thinking of heading off?'    .

If you are thinking of undertaking a long distance voyage any time soon and are within reach of London by 18th August, this is a seminar you won't want to miss.

The Cruising Associations (CA) Blue Water Section, is organising a Long Distance Sailing Seminar to be held at the CA headquarters in London’s Limehouse Basin on 18 August 2012.


The programme deals with topics of interest to both those at the planning stage and cruisers currently sailing in locations where ‘home’ is only reached by airplane.

The programme commences with registration at 09.30 and will continue until approximately 17.00. Plenty of time has been allowed for discussion at the end of each presentation and further informal discussion will be possible with speakers, after their presentation. The library will be open and available during and after the seminar.

Programme:

Mid ocean-things that could spoil your day by Vyv Cox, a frequent technical contributor to Yachting Monthly and PBO who will advise on inspection and hopefully avoidance.

Power on Board by Matt Boney who has recently written an article on the subject for long distance cruisers. He will be talking about generation, storage, conservation and monitoring of power

Staying in Touch will be presented by Ed Wildgoose of Mailasail, who provides satellite and wifi communications equipment, services and expertise

Victualling and Food Care by Sandy Duker, BW secretary who has been sailing long distance for 17 years and has well over 100,000 sea miles behind her will talk about care, keeping and cooking food for long passages

Grenada- a yachting destination, a brief talk by Sharon Bernstein on the benefits of Grenada as the location to leave your boat safely whilst you return home or travel elsewhere.

Fuel Care-Biocides and Bugs, another brief talk by Tony Warr, a BW member who in a previous life ran a business supplying diesel biocides to airlines and fleet vehicle operators

Yacht Preparation and Equipment for long distance sailing, to be presented by Michael Hartshorn, a BW member currently sailing in N. America for the second season.

MyCA and Captain’s mate, a talk by Ivan Andrews, the CA’s very own IT guru, who will talk about the continuing developments and use by members of the Captain,s mate phone app and the CA website

Managing Medical Matters on Board, a talk by Dr Bernie Smallman, a regular speaker at the Medsec seminars, dealing with the problems of resolving medical issues on board when you may be several days away from professional help.

For those wishing to stay on for supper or just a chat, the bar will be open after the seminar. Limited car parking is available and overnight cabin accommodation is currently available for members.

The cost for the seminar is £18 for members and £45 for non members and includes tea, coffee and refreshments during the day and a buffet lunch. Places are limited so early booking is advised.

Non members joining the Cruising Association on the day will benefit from a £25 reduction on their membership fees per family membership.

Bookings can be made directly through the CA office on +44 (0)20 7537 2828 or office@cruising.org.uk.
