The SSCA Annapolis Gam starts with a dinghy raft-up ("Heading South" - sharing knowledge between those who have and those who plan to) on Thursday afternoon at 5. Seminars start at 3p on Friday and run through Saturday. There is a flea market and round tables on Sunday.
In addition to the keynote by Beth Leonard we have NOAA OPC coming to talk about new weather products and weather guru Lee Chesneau talking about how the self sufficient sailor can use that data. We have a lady mechanic talking to our lady cruisers about engines and systems. Mike Ahart of Waterway Guides and Mark Doyle of Cruising the Waterways are speaking also. We have sessions on communications afloat, troubleshooting electrical systems, and more. SSCA members get a discount at admission but all are welcome.
Y'all c'mon down to the Rhode River.
Please note that fees cover our costs and all the speakers are donating their time. This is not a commercial enterprise. We are cruisers helping cruisers.
Haleakula will be there displaying her SCCA flag but unable to attend the onshore programs. We are returning home from our weeks sojourn south.
