Early Spring Seminars
Each spring, the club presents one or more seminars on sailing and sailboat racing. The seminars are free and open to the public. Seminar subjects and speakers vary. Olympic racers and single-handed ocean crossers have been guest speakers. Accomplished club members have shared their insights and experiences. There have been videotapes, films, panel discussions, chalk talks and slide presentations, all designed to improve the knowledge and abilities of local sailors and to interest non-sailors in the sport. Usually held at Northland Library in the North Hills.

Preseason Social Events
The Spring Fling is a traditional social that is usually held after one of the seminars. The club has also hosted Pre-Launch Pot Luck Dinners. Both events provide opportunities for members to get acquainted and start to think sailing, even though snow may still be on the ground.

Summer Social Events
Several social sailing events are planned each summer. Among them are picnic days, gimmick races, raft-ups, and special events to which sailboarders and cruising boaters are invited. All of these events encourage members to sail together, learn from one another, and take pleasure in the company of fellow sailing enthusiasts.

Annual Meeting and Fall Banquet
At the end of the season, our members gather for an awards dinner where both serious and humorous trophies are presented and an annual business meeting is held. Officers and directors for the coming year are elected at this meeting.

Other Activities
The club also plans other special events and promotions from time to time. Information on these activities appears in Batten the Breeze, the club’s newsletter, which is normally published six times per year. The Breeze also presents race results, ads, opinion, and other information of interest to members.
