“Around The Americas - The Expedition” Presentation March 30


The once in a lifetime voyage of the


crew and scientists who sailed “Around the Americas” on the 64-foot cutter Ocean Watch will be featured at a presentation this spring in Ballard. Captain Mark Schrader will host a


benefit scholarship program for Ballard High School’s Maritime Academy on Wednesday, March 30 at the Leif Erikson Hall in Ballard. Ocean Watch’s remarkable sea


voyage Around the Americas began in Ballard in June of 2009 and returned to Ballard in June of 2010. Traversing the seas in the bitter cold of the Arctic to the tranquility and searing heat of the equator and the 50 knot winds around the shores of CHILI that abated long enough for the Cape Horn traversal to the Pacific Ocean, it was truly a remarkable adventure. Around the Americas was a 28,000


mile sailing circumnavigation of the American continents with the mission of inspiring, educating, and engaging the citizens of the Americas to protect our fragile oceans. Relive with Schrader the trials and


tribulations of the voyage, the study of the problems and challenges of melting ice, farm fishing algal blooms, and poisonous shellfish, just a few of the topics that he will discuss. Thirteen countries, fifty-three ports in 382 days. This is an extraordinary story. The program is the final segment of

Instructors & Skippers: Effective Ways to Teach Sailing to Students & Crew Seminar January 22


Here’s your opportunity to learn


from professional educator and lifelong sailor, Bruce Larson. Born and raised in the PNW, Bruce has sailed the Puget Sound and its islands extensively since early childhood. Bruce’s dynamic presentation incorporates how people learn and motivating each type of learner to excel. Sailing instructors agree that Bruce's research-based teaching techniques, applied specifically to sailing instruction, make an immediate impact in their ability to successfully communicate the art, skills and joy of sailing to groups of would-be sailors with differing learning styles. He’s also Professor of Education at WWU and offers practical teaching tips to San Juan Sailing's instructors at their Instructor Clinic. Come hear Bruce at the 2011 Seattle Boat Show at 3:30pm.


Docks Closed At Jones Island And Sucia Island State Parks


The Washington State Parks


and Recreation Commission today announced the immediate closure of the docks at Jones Island and Sucia Island state parks in the San Juan Islands for construction work. The docks will undergo major


construction to replace pilings, gangways, piers and floats. Additionally, the docks will be upgraded to include enhanced access consistent with requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The existing docks are more than 30 years old. During the closure, boaters are requested to not moor to the floats, watch for debris in the area and stay clear of the construction barges. Dock work is expected to be


completed around the end of February. Floats will be reinstalled around late March to early-April 2011.
