2022/23 Winter Seminars and Classes

Seven Years of Liveaboard Cruising

Featuring MCSC friends Lisa Alberte and Russ Whitford

Comparing liveaboard cruising with chartering is like comparing a long-term relationship with speed dating. Lisa Alberte and Russ Whitford will share the rewarding lifestyle of full-time cruising and give ideas on how others can join them out there. They will cover what is required for a boat and equipment‚ and‚ importantly‚ the proper mindset and techniques to ease into life afloat.

Expect to leave with answers to questions like:

• How much money will you need?
• What if you change your mind mid-trip?
• What does diet and exercise look like?
• Where will you find health care?
• Can family come visit?
