So what is the coolest thing you have ever seen? Confessions of a whale watching captain with over 7,000 days on the water.

The next virtual webinar sponsored by the American Cetacean Society (ACS) will be held on Wednesday January 18 at 7:00pm over Zoom. Troy Sears will be presenting “So what is the coolest thing you have ever seen? Confessions of a whale watching captain with over 7,000 days on the water.” No registration is required.

About the Speaker:
Troy started sailing in San Diego in 1971 at age 9 and has been an America’s Cup Fan since the age of 12. He was self-taught after buying a Hobie 12 with his newspaper boy money. Troy graduated UCSD in 1985. Troy started Next Level Sailing 20 years ago in 2003 and purchased America in 2008. He sailed America over 300,000 miles and has sailed in every ocean except the newly named Southern Ocean.

About the Presentation:
This presentation will cover general history of sailing, whale watching history from Australia to Iceland and points in between, and a proposed new initiative for the San Diego – ACS Chapter to educate boaters about whale so we can better protect our marine life off our coast. I am proposing to fund both a program both on and off the water to make San Diego a model city for protecting our marine life.
