Whether you are planning a blue water cruise or thinking about going offshore for the first time, the Ocean Sailing Forum is a great opportunity to get some top tips and ideas from the experts. We've teamed up with SAIL magazine to bring you a free-form networking breakfast, followed by an organized 2-hour panel discussion.

Topics will include all aspects of blue water cruising; from provisioning to preventing halyard chafe, sailing with children to choosing a sail plan. There will be a focus on preparing for a passage like the Caribbean 1500 (Hampton VA to British Virgin Islands), but you don't have to be a rally participant to attend - everyone is welcome!

Our panelists are all knowledgeable sailors with a wide range of offshore sailing experience, and will include past participants from World ARC and Caribbean 1500, World Cruising Club principal Andrew Bishop, and leading industry figures such as Charles Doane, editor of SAIL.

Author Liza Copeland will be on hand to sign copies of her popular cruising books, and to talk about the practicalities of family voyaging.

Places are strictly limited, and must be booked in advance. The cost is only $17 per person, which includes breakfast and a FREE ticket to the US Sailboat Show, taking place at the same time.

The Ocean Sailing Forum will be held in the O'Callaghan Hotel in Annapolis, walking distance from the US Sailboat Show, and with good parking close by.
