Our friends at the Essex Yacht Club in Essex, Connecticut are pleased to announce the second in their series of Ocean Racing Forums for 2019, a presentation by Ocean Racers, on Wednesday, August 28.

“The Ocean Racers team, led by Morgen Watson and Meg Reilly, currently sail Hermes, a Pogo 12.50, and they have raced more than 180,000 ocean miles,” said Phil Dickey of the EYC Regatta Committee. “Morgen and Meg will show their recent movie Surviving the Middle, about their experiences in the 50th Anniversary Rolex Middle Sea Race, and they will then discuss topics ranging from boat preparation to sail inventory to ocean navigation. As in our first Forum, we hope to have a vigorous and provocative question-and-answer period after the presentation.”

The Forum will begin at 18:15 at the Essex Yacht Club, which is located at 13 Novelty Lane in Essex. The Forum is open to the public and free of charge. Please RSVP to Office Manager Ellen Kelly at ellen.kelly@essexyc.com, or call 860-767-8121, if you plan to come.  Please park in the sailors’ lot, the gravel one southwest of the main Club building.
