Next week I will be honored to be presenting at the US Sailing and the Marine Trades Association of Maryland, the Safety-At-Sea Program that takes place at our United States Naval Academy in Annapolis Maryland.

This will be the second year I am honored to be a speaker at this important event. 

This is a two day program designed for Cruising and Racing sailors.  The line up of speakers will  present the information that goes along with keeping you and your crews safely at sea.
