Hey, sailors out there, our member Lynn Reister (the marine surveyor – Lodestar Marine) sent a note about a class to be held this weekend in Pt. Townsend by a friend of hers that has a couple spots open.
Note from Lynn: “They will offer a substanchian discount and could help find lodging (I think), But, you MUST CALL Christian (his wife) and mention my name SPECIFICALLY. Christian’s Cell 360-643-3302”
Aloft Ladies – A Weekend Workshop for Women Sailors
- Brion’s Rigging Loft – Port Townsend – October 1 & 2
This is a weekend just for you – in the company of other women sailors. We hope to get everyone comfortable, competent and most critically – safe aboard any boat. It is a powerful peace of mind one acquires when you understand how to reeve blocks to advantage and that the winches are strong,maintained and well thought out in the deck set-up. You will know because you did it yourself. This experience will give you the upper hand and the extra power to move mountains – or the boat through a mountain of seas. Women are often the one sent aloft – do you know how to get around up there – on your own, get your tools up with you, or how to get the problem fixed? You will know better after this class.
