Heavy Weather Sailing

“Heavy Weather Sailing” by popular sailing writer and author Charlie Doane. In addition to general insight and advice, Charlie’s presentation will include a fascinating analysis of the offshore abandonment of the catamaran Be Good Too 300 miles east of Cape Hattaras in January 2014 in which he was personally involved (that is, on board as crew). The incident was chronicled on his popular blog as well  as his new book, The Sea is Not Full. (Copies of the book will be available at the event for those interested.)

9:15-10: Check-in and catch-up, coffee and pastries provided
10-11: Presentation
11-12: Q&A, discussion, socializing, book signing

He has been sailing on the coast of Maine since childhood and took up bluewater sailing in 1992. To date he has sailed some 80,000 miles offshore, including seven transatlantics and a few singlehanded passages between New England and the West Indies. He has sailed in the Newport-Bermuda, Fastnet, and Sydney-Hobart races, among others. He is author of The Modern Cruising Sailboat (International Marine, 2010) and most recently The Sea Is Not Full (Seapoint Books, 2017).
