If it's Wednesday, it's Sailing Seminar Night

Once again the DRYA is offering Wednesday Night sailing seminars in January, February and March. This year the nine weekly seminars are designed to broaden the knowledge of sea adventure for sailors. All seminars start at 7:00 pm and are held at different clubs in the Detroit area. These seminars are an excellent way to meet boat owners, crew, and other people interested in sailing and visit the sail clubs in town. It?s also a great way to help chase away those winter blues and feed your sailing habit during the long winter months!

For detailed information visit the DRYA website at for full seminar descriptions and any changes to the schedule.
