They have this seminar every March in Annapolis. Not sure whether you want to get them to give another seminar or whether a bunch of us put on our own.
I took this seminar a few years back in order to qualify as watch captain in a race I was doing. Lots of good speakers. It was good.... BUT most of the information is available in books and online. I also feel that if you sail offshore w/ any regularity and do so in a responsible manner you're going to be far better equipped to deal w/ "situations" than someone who doesn't sail offshore but just took the course and has a false sense of security.
MOB is a typical issue. IN THEORY you can rescue someone; in practice it can be very difficult to maneuver back to them when the wind is blowing 30 knots versus 10-12 knots.
Hey, I've been off the board for a while; did ya do the DelMarVa like you were planning?
