Hi Gang,

Jim Oaks, one of the very best jibers in the Gorge, will be giving a jibing clinic this coming Saturday, Sept 2. No matter how good or how bad your jibes are you can learn a lot from Jim.

The free clinic will be at the Northwave building just east of the new Water Front Park.

Schedule:

8AM: Free coffee and donuts
9AM: Jim Oaks jibing clinic
10AM: Rigging Clinic

Mike Godsey

Thanks Mike for getting the word out. There will also be a rigging clinic I hear. It is so great to hear that Northwave Custom Sails is still making all of their sails right here in the Gorge. Made in the USA....gotta love it!!!!

I was surprised so many sailors showed up for the clinic. It was fun and rewarding for me. Several people said the tips shared really helped them.

At the rigging clinic a friend of mine was looking at my sail and said" I just ordered a quiver of those, how do you get the headcap so low". I told him it's a new fixed head design. He walked right into the loft and talked to the sailmaker just in time to change his sails to the fixed head. I thought it was so cool to be able to talk face to face with your sailmaker and have him happily make a last minute change.

It looks like we will we be doing the clinics again, probably next spring. Thanks to all who came this year.
