CYCA Information Evening: A Pilot Guide to Cruising to Hobart, Tuesday 6 November

This evening, Tuesday 6 November from 6.30 onwards, is conducted for boat owners considering cruising from Sydney to Hobart including those planning to join the Hobart 2013 Rendezvous Cruise in January and February of next year.

The presenters for the evening are:

Marius Coomans the founder of Skipr.net will explain how to make use of the internet while cruising for the posting of positions and reports. Go to http://skipr.net/wp/where-is/hobart-2013-cruise/ for a preview. There will be advice on the best ways to connect available on the evening.

Rob Starkey the author of "Rob's Passage Planner" on how plan your east coast cruise and to Hobart in particular. Rob will have copies of his Passage Planner available on the night and you can preview the book at  http://skipr.net/goodies/robs-passage-planner/

Frank Walker will discuss some of the ways cruisers can combine available weather information with their passage plan. Weather routing is used extensively by the racing fleet and is now increasingly accessible and a great tool for cruising. Frank will demonstrate the use of Predictwind to accurately plan the best routes, destinations and anchorages for your cruise. Have a look at how it works at  http://www.predictwind.com/what-predictwind-forecast/cruising/

Denis Doyle is co-ordinating the evening. Denis is currently preparing his and Lynne's new Sextant, an Xc42, to head south for Hobart 2013 for 6 to 8 weeks of cruising in the waters of Tasmania. All attendees are encouraged to plan to stay for dinner at the bistro following to exchange ideas and forge plans with other Cruisers.

Dinner will be available in the downstairs Bistro after the presentation as will conversations with other cruisers about their plans for sailing to Hobart.
