Sail Maintenance with Evolution Sails
Jason Fanjoy the owner/operator of Evolution Sails Vancouver will be doing an informative presentation on sail care and maintenance of sails. This presentation will be well received by both the cruising and racing sailor. The presentation will start on sail care maintenance and how to make your sails last longer-cleaning, storage, folding, on the water tips and what to look out for. Also discussion on marine canvas options and how to clean canvas and sail material.
There will be samples of popular upgrades and hardware in the industry and discussion on pros/cons/price of different products. All the time people are welcome to ask questions so each talk is catered towards the group. There will be samples of everything discussed which will be passed around the group, this is a hands on presentation- not a slide show.
There will be samples of sail cloth with a presentation on different cloth types, fibers,
how they are produced and what to look for.
Docking made easy with Marco Coda
- Demystifying the art of docking
By far the activity that most strikes fear into the hearts of sailors - docking at a public dock chock full of sailors perched on their deck chairs to critique your performance. Wouldn't you love to dock under perfect control while your crew steps slowly and gracefully off the boat?
The Docking Strategies Seminar is for both new and seasoned sailors.
The seminar covers:
* How different forces and factors affect the maneuvering of your boat –
and how they can work for you or against you
* How to use these factors to your advantage
* How to prepare for your arrival at the dock
* How to choose your approach strategically based on your specific situation
The seminar is provided by Marco Coda, Sail Canada Instructor Evaluator and owner of Carpe Diem Sail Training. Marco recently developed a Docking Made Easy online course. He'll be using images and video from the course to demonstrate docking principles and strategies.
