At the Chicago Boat, RV and Strictly Sail Show (January 11 to 15), Blue Water Sailing and Cruising Compass publisher George Day is offering a half-day seminar on the skills you need to make your sailing and cruising life safe, successful and fun. This three-hour seminar, scheduled for Sunday morning January 15 at McCormick Place, covers boat selection and preparation, safety and seamanship skills and how to develop the self-sufficiency that cruisers need. George is a circumnavigator and has 100,000 miles of offshore sailing. If you dream of sailing over the horizon on your own boat, then Essential Cruising Skills is the seminar for you.

George will also be giving free seminars at the show on Thursday and Friday: Multihulls for Cruising and Cruising the Bahamas.
