    I will be giving a talk at the Metal Boat Festival in Anacortes, WA on the topic "Sailing Junk Rigged Sailboats:  25,000 Miles with Battens, Balance and Rust."  JRA members are welcome to attend and/or bring their junk-rigged boats to Anacortes, especially if they are constructed of aluminum or steel.  If I learn of your attendance sufficiently in advance, I can turn my presentation into a panel presentation.  And if more than one junk is present, we can also call it a JRA Junket!  Other presenters at the Metal Boat Festival will be talking about building, maintaining, and cruising on aluminum and steel boats.  More information is available at

    That sounds like so much fun.

    Here's that same address to the Metal Boat Society, linked.
