Jeanne Zortman, LPSC member and extreme adventurer, will share her stories of several months of sailing the high seas.
Crashing into an iceberg at full speed and rescuing the captain as he drifts out to the open sea in a homemade dinghy with just one oar are just some of the stories of Jeannie's sailing adventures in Patagonia, Antarctica, South Georgia and across the South Atlantic to Cape Town, South Africa this past winter. Come hear these stories and more from 7 1/2 months of sailing in the high latitudes on a 50' Damien II Schooner and across the South Atlantic on a 45' Ketch as crew.
Please help us share the love of sailing with some great kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Phoenix.
We are expecting about 25 guests including the kids and their chaperones, so we need as many host boats as possible.
The theme for this year's event is going to be around racing. Sailboat racing to be specific, but you knew that. This does not mean you need to be a racer to be involved or to be a host boat. In fact you don't need to know anything about racing. This is all for fun and we'll all learn together. Before the races we will teach the kids about boat safety, parts of the sailboat and some basics about racing. We will then head out for one or two races starting and finishing at the no wake zone markers in Honeymoon Cove.
In addition to host boats, we need plenty of help setting up, serving food, taking pictures, as well as folks to teach the boat safety, sailboats knowledge and racing basics. Everyone is invited to stop by and help. We will be meeting in the picnic area on the dock at Pleasant Harbor Marina.

Please join us for some great food and valuable discussion on safe sailing. This roundtable forum on Safe Sailing will be a learning and sharing opportunity where you will be able to learn from others while also sharing your own experiences and knowledge. Each topic will be presented with a point of view and be given a 10-15 minute timer for open discussion and conclusions. The topics may include things such as “What your guests and new crew members need to know”, “Things to consider when hoisting sails”, “Tips for avoiding accidental jibes”. “Precautions when sailing short handed”. These are just a few of the many potential discussion points being considered. The actual topics to be discussed will be voted on in ranked order by the participants upon arrival.
The roundtable discussions will start promptly at 6:30 while food orders are being taken. Everyone will be responsible for paying their own food bill. Ordering dinner will be optional but we hope you take this opportunity to try their unique culinary delights. Chompies does not charge us for reserving and using their back room. They have been graciously accommodating this and other LPSC meetings only in hope of serving us and building their customer base.
Meet at 9:30 in the front parking lot of AZ Game and Fish at 5000 W. Carefree Highway Phoenix, 85086.
Please wear closed-toe shoes, socks, and long pants. There will be a short safety briefing and registration form to sign on site. We will provide you with extension grabbers, safety vests, and trash collection bags. Donuts and drinking water will also be supplied. The process should last about 1 ½ hours.
After the event, you are welcome to join us at Ray’s Pizza near I17 and Care Free Highway for a no-host lunch where we can trash talk about our experiences.
