Sönke Roever to host Cruising Seminar, boot Düsseldorf, with focus on sails, seasickness and storms

On Friday, 24 January, circumnavigator and cruising expert, Sönke Roever, will host a day seminar at boot Düsseldorf . He’ll be discussing all essential aspects of cruising with a yacht: manoeuvres, navigation, anchoring and sailing at night. He’ll be joined by other guest speakers.

Jimmy Cornell has sailed around the world several times, through the Northwest Passage in Antarctica, has penned many cruising books, and is the founder of rallies such as the Atlantic Odyssey. Jimmy will discuss the main factors that can contribute to the success or failure of a voyage – covering the choice of boat and equipment, the ‘right’ crew, and dealing with emergencies, tools and spares.

The meteorologist, weather router and Olympic coach, Dr Meeno Schrader, will explain how to plan a cruise with a focus on weather, while Bjarne Lorenzen (sail maker, sail designer and boat builder) will show how to trim the sails the right way by giving various tips regarding their profile, twist and shape.

Plus, Dr Stefanie Kamke will offer strategies for ‘Dealing with sea sickness’ and how to prevent getting seasick in the first place.

Tickets for the seminar are 95€.
