In one week over 150 trailer sailor crews will be meeting at Lake Havasu City, AZ, to enjoy fellowship, share sailing stories and sail at the 2011 Havasu Pocket Cruisers Convention (HPCC). For many northern sailors the warm weather will be a nice change from winter cold, rain and snow … and after the weather of the past three-to-four days a few southern folks ya’all look forward to some warmer and less ice and snow filled days. I excitedly look forward to again seeing the people I’ve met on sailing trips over the years, putting a face and voice to with the of those I have exchanged forum posts and emails, and making new friends.
I am traveling ‘boatless’, and will meet up with Sage 17, Jerry, Gail, Sal in Havasu. Sage 17 is scheduled to be on the water Monday evening, 14 February. Sage will be on the water and taking part in the sailing events through the closing of HPCC 2011. If you are interested in a ‘ride along sail’ let Gail, Sal or myself know through an email prior to Friday, 11 February; or find any of us at Lake Havasu.
On Tuesday evening, 15 February, there will be a Sage 17 & Sage Marine information session open to all persons interested in learning about the boat’s development and production plans. Jerry will speak on the tasks designing the boat, creating the molds and putting together the prototype boat. Gail, Sal and I will also do our best to answer all participant’s questions.
During the event I will be making daily posts in the Sage Marine EVENTS AND RENDEZVOUS forum ( www.sagemarine.us/forum ). Will be writing on the HPCC activities, conducting interviews of the pocket cruisers and share my own experiences. Check the Sage Marine forum daily to collect your ‘daily dose’ of Sage 17 information, pictures and videos.
