You’re Invited – Not All Goes to Plan – Solo Sailing Webinar

Solo Sailing

Nov 9, 2023

Guest Speaker: Richard Lariviére

Born in St-Georges de Beauce, I’ve spent most of my life on or in the water. As a member of West Island Squadron, I’ve taken just about every course offered by CPS-ECP to prepare me for my first successful crewed transatlantic crossing in 2012-2013. Recently retired, I set out to repeat the journey as a solo sailor in 2022 aboard my Tartan 34 Classic – “Indian Summer”. Things didn’t go as planned!

Cruising is not always “fair winds and following seas”, sometimes you have to use all your knowledge, capabilities and your limited tools to make it to safe harbour.

This online event is open to all members, students and their guests!

Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
