This will be the last time I post this, promise.
Hey Seattle,Salem,Eugene and Portland sailors:
I'm trying to reach the intermediate sailors who are stuck
at the "learning to water-start, learning to jibe" phase of
The ABK instructors will be in the area the weekend of
July 11-12. They will teach a mini-camp, 2-day clinic at Odell
Lake in the Cascades. This is an excellent lake to learn your
waterstarts and to have a first short-boarding
experience. Average windspeed is 20mph+ from noon - dusk. This
lake is driven by the same thermals that drive the Gorge wind
tunnel. It's located approximately 70 miles SE of Eugene off
of 58. For those of you who are familiar with the ABK camps
you know that most of them are 3-4 day affairs costing
approx $350-$400. The primary difference in cost is the
fact that the campers will be providing all of their own food
and camping equipment.
The cost will be $100/sailor + camping fees, equipment will be
provided, but you will be responsible for your camping equipment
and meals. The Demo Van with the latest Bic and F2 equipment
will be there. The instructors will be Andy Brandt, Alf and Paul
Imperato and others if needed. The idea is to have 1 instructor
for every 4-5 sailors.
If you are interested please send me mail, or contact me
at either 690-1116 or 591-7009. Currently we have 16 people
signed up, we'd like to get 20.
