Captains Deck Poster
Sunday, 26 March 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

The Captain’s Deck is run by the magazine Cruising Helmsman and will be hosted by FSC. It is an all-day event with expert presenters who take turns to entertain and inform on cruising subjects related to our cruising area, with the editor of Cruising Helmsman doing a Q&A at the end. The Captain’s Deck is held each year, but has never been held in WA. Both Cruising Helmsman and FSC are keen to host this event in WA. It has been very well received in the East and we hope WA sailors too will benefit from this event. It is open to all WA clubs to attend.

This will be a ticketed event at $40 per head, which includes lunch and morning/afternoon tea. Bookings can be made via FSC Reception on 9435 8800 paid by credit card or membership account. Booking is essential.
