Following that on October 19 is the second episode of the Pacific Cup’s Pacific Offshore Academy at Richmond YC, starting at 1 p.m. This class, organized by Sally Honey, will cover emergency gear, power consumption, rig integrity, sail selection and details on race inspections. The cost is $20 and the class is open to anyone. Register HERE.
