Santana Folks,

While it's pretty unlikely any of us will sail our Tunas singlehanded  
to Hawaii (although I think it's a possible thing to do), you might  
be interested in the SSS seminars.  They're very informative and  
interesting.  Much of the information is helpful to those of us who  
aspire to sailing shorter races solo -- say out to the S. E. Farallon  
Island and back each Spring.

Check out the SSS Website for a list of exact dates and locations as  
the Winter rolls by.

Pat ( sort of "arrrh" - it's hard to be a pirate on a 22-foot boat)

> race singlehanded from San Francisco, CA to Kauai, HI.  Our first  
> topic is "Getting Started", which will cover the equipment  
> requirements our safety inspectors will check for before you are  
> allowed to cross the starting line.  We will have a number of  
> veteran racers that will share their approach to solving the  
> requirements for their particular boat, one of them will surely  
> work for your boat.  We will also show a 1 hour documentary about  
> the 1986 race.
> The first seminar will be hosted by the South Beach Yacht Club  
> www.southbeachyc.org on Monday October 22, our presentation will  
> begin at 7:30 PM and run until about 10 PM.  There is no charge for  
> attending and everyone is welcomed.  No host bar.
