Pacific Sail Expo recap. 


Hi Wocketeer’s, 

Good to see to see all of you who stopped by at Pacific Sail Expo! 

Special thanks to our official supplier sponsors Forespar Mfg, Samson Cordage, and Doyle Sails, who allowed our volunteers to set up in their booths. Also thanks to MAS Epoxies, Nobeltec, Svendsens and Complete Cruising Solutions for their continued support.

On the right is Bill Hannah from Forespar. 

There wasn’t a whole lot of time to fraternize with all my industry friends, which was too bad. Sail Expo is a tremendous gathering of the sailing biz talent and knowledge. I wish I could see more of the seminars, etc myself. At least I was on time to the seminars that I was speaking at! 

Overall the show was great for us, with good clothing sales and the chance to meet many folks and tell them about our program. It was also great to see a lot of familiar faces and friends. You really know who your friends are when they buy a hat or jacket just to support you! 

Big week ahead, meeting with a couple of potential title sponsors(!). Will keep you all posted on how things turn out. I will also be taking care of a few special rigging consultations for supporters and friends 

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped out!!! Couldn’t have done it without you. 

Smooth Sailing,
Bruce Schwab, Skipper
