Ask a Vet

Sylvia Singin' that Same Old SongWe Want to Help!

One of the best things about Pacific Cup is the spirit of Ohana ("family") that pervades our organization.  Fellow participants are always eager to lend a hand, or at least offer advice from a comfortable distance!

Below is a list of  folks willing to be contacted directly with your questions.  Please be cautioned that in all cases, the language of the race documents governs, and that only specific variations or interpretations from the technical committee or chief inspector, acting in their official capacities, may vary the rules.

  •  Mary Lovely (mary.p.lovely@gmail.com), Past Commodore and 8-time vet, likes to chat about preparing yourself and your crew (personal gear and the like), medical, and food.
  • Michael Moradzadeh (webmaster@pacificcup.org). Past Commodore, six-time veteran/comms boat, is willing to talk electronics, watch schedules, provisioning, emergency rudders, and issues for the non-sled racer.
  • Sylvia Seaberg (sseaberg@gmail.com), Rear Commodore and Inspections Chair, willing to discuss, among other things, inspection considerations, how to negotiate the equipment requirements, emergency gear
  • Jim Quanci (jim.quanci@autodesk.com) a 17-time vet, including those "other" Pacific Races, likes to discuss Doublehanded, Small Boats, Family programs, Doing it on a tight budget.

Truthfully, all of these folks are willing to discuss virtually ANY topic, and will be happy to address your questions or point you to someone who can.  Fair Winds!
