Winter Seminar Series
We are currently scheduling the seminar series for this winter, please check back soon for the schedule of events. If you have any questions or would like to propose a speaker and/or topic for this winter, please contact our Head of Instruction, Mills Botham, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Winter Education Seminar Series is a great way to learn new skills and keep your sailing mind sharp. The seminars are open to the campus community and you do not need to be a current member of the sailing club. Feel free to invite your friends!
This year we ask participants to bring at least one perishable item per seminar to be donated to the Second Harvest Foodbank.
