If you’d like to learn more about multis, pop on over to Oakland YC tonight for a talk by North Sail’s Seadon Wijsen and frequent Latitude contributor Dave Wilhite. "Our talk will focus on four areas of multihull sailing," says Wilhite. "Boat set-up, sail usage, race approach, and the importance of physical conditioning." The presentation, which starts at 7:30 p.m. and scheduled to run about 40 minutes, is free and open to the public. A Q&A session will follow. Click here for directions.
