“ICW (Part 1): Tips and Techniques” gives you specific and detailed tips and techniques on cruising the ICW. Covered are boat handling techniques, such as in tide and current and around bridges; navigational tips; provisioning and marina tips and other helpful information to ease your trip south. This seminar, and ICW Part 2 are for the cruiser planning on leaving in the next year to two years. A Q&A session will follow.
Wally will have just completed his 31st ICW passage prior to his arrival at the Toronto International Boat Show, after having led some 17 boats south in the Sail to the Sun ICW Rally, his fourth rally format trip south on the ICW. Following the show, he will again sail to the Bahamas - after repainting his boat that is. When he's not sailing, he writes for various sailing and boating publications, including Cruising World, who published his feature article on the ICW in their September 2017 edition, and has produced several videos for The Sailing Channel. Wally particularly enjoys answering the questions of new cruisers at his seminars. Those heading south in the fall of 2018 will be especially interested in learning more about the ICW rally going south to Miami that he will be leading for the fourth time. Wally blogs his cruising adventures at http://bloggingtheICW.blogspot.com and also has a highly enjoyable Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/SailorsandCruisers/ if you'd like to join him online.
