Paul & Sheryl Shard, cruisers extraordinaire

distantShores

As producers of the award-winning “Distant Shores” TV series, Paul and Sheryl Shard have cruised more than 100,000 miles around the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Mediterranean seas.

Not only are they highly experienced cruisers with a wealth of hard-won information and advice to share, they’re two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. Don’t miss your chance to get together with them at SAIL’s Secrets of the ICW seminar in Annapolis Sunday, October 11.

Also headlining at our talent-packed seminar are On The Water Chartguides authors and ICW Snowbird Rally hosts Mark and Diana Doyle, renowned systems guru Nigel Calder, Snowbird Rally technical adviser Tom Hale, and Boat Galley Cookbook author Carolyn Shearlock.

This all-day seminar costs $95 and includes breakfast, lunch and an informal Q&A session with our speakers. You’ll come away from it with a thorough understanding of what’s involved in preparing for an ICW transit, not just for your boat but for you and your crew.

The Secrets of the ICW seminar takes place at the Historic Inn, Governor’s Hall Ballroom, 58 State Circle, Annapolis. To sign up, click here:
