Chalk Talk - Sailing from a Tanker Pilots Perspective

  • 9 Mar 2018
  • 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • CYC

Registration is closed

How many times have you been out sailing or racing and had a big container ship come through? Are you surprised how fast they are going? Have you had them blow their horn at you? Has it affected your race? Have you had to change course? 

Have you said/thought: Seriously we are sailboats, we don’t really go fast (in the grand scheme of things), why all the fuss? Don’t they know we are racing here? 

Come hear the other side, directly from a big ship pilot. Hear why they get all “horn”y. How they see us as sailboats and racers. What is the best way to interact with them that works for everyone. 

Q&A Session to follow

There will be a quick briefing on CSS Race #2 prior to the talk. 

If you have any questions please contact Melissa at miss.mayhem.sj24@gmail.com

Thank you, Business Members!
