ROSS MACDONALD, two time OLYMPIC MEDALIST in sailing for CANADA, is presenting sail trim tips after DAVE CRAMB (RACE READY) for the JIB SET membership tomorrow - if you are interested in racing sailboats, or just sailing them better, this double header is sure to please

JIB SET has organized a number of seminars to help membership keep their heads in boating when the weather is not ideal for actually boating  

only a few spaces remain 

these sessions are free to full and associate JIB SET members - a VANCOUVER sailing club 

another popular session will be the SPINNAKER CLINIC coming up in MARCH, just after the JIB SET OPEN HOUSE

if you are new to sailing or looking to get back into it, remember JIB SET, with unlimited sailing a only $149/month on late model, purpose built club sailboats,  is the best value of any keelboat sailing program in the area

we're also around all morning for the club maintenance session
