When racing offshore, sailors have to be prepared for anything and everything, and when the ocean tosses up a new challenge, it's what you have done to prepare that will be essential.

So on Thursday, May 16th from 6 - 9 PM North Sails San Diego will host an Offshore Performance Seminar, featuring two-time Volvo-race skipper Charlie Enright and veteran offshore and America's Cup navigator Peter Isler.

Topics covered in the seminar include:

  • Sail Selection
  • Weather & Routing
  • Squall Management
  • Watch Systems
  • Food & Gear
  • Safety
  • Maneuvers
  • Communication
From sail selection to squall management, Charlie and Peter can help you put together your offshore toolkit.

RSVP for this free event and join us to talk directly with the experts and hear what they do to prepare for offshore adventures, such as the upcoming 50th edition Transpac and any of its qualification races and passages.

North Sails San Diego is located at 4630 Santa Fe Street, San Diego, CA 92109.

Register here while there's still space.
