Spinnaker Pole Maintenance

Several years and many miles have passed since our carbon fiber spinnaker poles last received professional attention to remove any corrosion and receive a fresh protective coating. This time my captain has decided to perform the necessary maintenance himself, with a little help from his family.

We carefully sanded the poles before transporting them to a garage for spraying.

Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show

As west-coasters do, today I attended my first Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show. It's the US west's largest all-sail boat show. The show is held annually each April (April 11-14 this year) in Oakland's Jack London Square, which is on the waterfront along the east-side of San Francisco Bay. We were pleased to find many of our boat system's west coast vendors.
