3rd Annual Spring Boating Symposium

Is anyone here going? March 15-17 at the NW Maritime Center in Port Townsend. They leaned more towards sail and passagemaking the first couple of years (Lin and Larry Pardey were the featured speakers in year one, and Capt. Fatty Goodlander was last year), but are now trying to branch out into more power cruising.

They actually invited us to participate by bringing our boat to the docks in Point Hudson (there will be quite a few boats open for tours). Attendees tour the boats and ask questions of the owners when they're not attending classes all weekend. We're supposedly there to talk about our experience living and working aboard while cruising the Pacific NW with a small child. That and we can speak about all of the WA State Parks in the San Juan Islands.

It's a pretty full weekend with about 25 experts and limited to 200 attendees. Even if you don't attend, and happen to be in the Port Townsend neighborhood, stop on by and say hi!
