The first Calgary Club Night of the season starts with a rush:  ever wonder what it might be like to race from Los Angeles to Honolulu??

Calgary’s Chris Lemke knows from personal experience having dedicated 12 months of blood, sweat, tears (and cash) to the Calgary-based campaign to acquire, prepare and race the Hobie 33 Dark Star in the 2017 Transpac.  The effort culminated in 12 days of incredible ocean racing and a finish worthy of all the effort. Chris’s presentation will cover logistics, boat prep, tactics, weather and try to convey what it’s like to go passage making with four big guys in a sailing torpedo. For a sneak preview of what this entailed, check out this Calgary Herald article.

All welcome!
