Evil in the Dark - Boating at Night

The human race seems to have an inherent fear of the dark. Darkness inhibits one of our critical senses . . . vision, which leads to unknowns and creates fear in all of us. It’s no wonder that sailors tend to have an increased level of anxiety when the topic of boating at night comes up. However, boating at night can be awe inspiring, as well as increase your cruising range to visit spots that may be inaccessible otherwise. Ken will give you tips to help you enjoy your night passages and stay safe.


Ken and Carol live and conduct sail training adventures on their custom designed/built aluminum cutter, Voyageur 10.10. Combined, they have logged over 100,000 miles. During the past 16 years they have presented hundreds of seminars on boating related topics. These seminars encourage would-be cruisers to pursue their cruising goals. First-hand experience and practical approach help you take your cruising goals from a “dream” to “reality”. Their “Safety-first” mind set will steer you away from some of the more common pitfalls. You, too, can enjoy safe and memorable cruising adventures on the high seas! You can check out their adventures and sailing courses at www.voyageursailing.com or Facebook “Voyageur Sailing”.
