Sailor Master Classes

The upcoming Pacific Sail & Powerboat Show has more to offer than looking and shopping. There are numerous free seminars in addition to a few all-day, advance-registration seminars requiring a paid tuition.

Best selling DIY boat-maintenance author Nigel Calder will share his expertise with his always-popular seminar: Marine Diesel Engines: Maintenance and Troubleshooting and Understanding and Troubleshooting Boat Electrical Systems. If you’re planning to go cruising or just love knowing how your boat works, this highly valuable, advanced- registration lecture is a must.
