Subject: Sailing with helmets - awesome talk FRIDAY

Well, not everyone you meet wears a helmet to go sailing, but we've got one such person on site this Friday evening for an off season talk.  Kim Alfreds' father founded the original JIB SET that spawned into national training programs (CYA now Sail Canada) and licensed beyond to become the American Sailing Association.   

This talk will look at the original F33 Cheekee Monkee and some of those adventures while looking ahead to the new F45RC Cheekee Monkee destined for our harbour in 2018 (after a few miles sailing from the Philippines).

We're told standing room only is fine - and it's not too long, so come on by and get a dose of multihull magic from someone who was putting foils on boats before any locals (and even the boat designer) thought it could be done.

This talk is priced for sailors... just like the wind, it's FREE!

Don't miss this one... should be lots of fun!
