Come join us to hear Captain John Redman present “Tug Life”.

Captain Redman is a tug boat Captain on the St. Johns River and works for McAllister Towing. (They operate the big red Tugs with a large “M” on the stack.)

John has promised us sea stories, videos of boating mishaps, and discussion of general bad decision making by boaters who chose to tangle with a tug or bigger ship.

John will regale us with stories of tug life on the St. Johns, how to stay out of their way, who has the right away (hint - it is never you even with sails up), how can you listen to what they are saying, and much more. If you have never been near or around tugs you will not be disappointed.

John will answer those nagging questions:

· What’s with all of the whistles between tugs??

· How can I stay out of your way???!!!

· Can I listen on my VHF to hear what is happening???

· … and much more

Happy hour/Cocktail hour begins at 6:30 pm and the meeting will begin at 7:30pm. Appetizers will be provided by the club. Food entrees may be ordered but payment is the responsibility of each individual and not the club.
