North U Expert Bill Gladstone Stop By To Discuss Sail Trim And Boat Speed


We had 54 people (near capacity of 60) attend North U’s full day Seminar Feb. 23rd on sail trim and boat speed.  This on the heels of the 110 people that attended the January Thursday Evening Seminar covering tactics and trim. Everyone who attend the Full Day Seminar seemed to enjoy it. How can you not, Bill Gladstone is an excellent speaker!

The local loft provided coffee, water, soda and snacks throughout the day. We even had beer out during the last break. This was not included in the price of the seminar. We did have a donation can out to benefit DRYA Jr Sailing. Karl Kuspa, loft manager, personally committed to match dollar for dollar for the first $150. We raised $120. At the next seminar we will be asking for donations to benefit the Bayview Mackinac Foundation.

The next free seminar is March 14th, from 7-9pm covering Mackinac Race Strategy, weather and routing. This is event will be at Bayview Yacht Club. Please RSVP to Detroit Office Manager, Chelsie Strong at
