If you have attended an American Sail Training Conference, you know how invaluable the experience is. In case you haven’t joined us in the past, the below audio is a sample of the valuable information and idea exchange that takes place.
Case study: Last year’s Safety at Sea Forum was chaired by Captain David Wood, USCG (ret) and the theme was Crisis Response. This audio is Captain Wood’s program introduction followed by Captain James Gladson, director of the Los Angeles Maritime Institute, owners and operators of the twin brigantines Exy Johnson and Irving Johnsonsetting the stage for a great presentation by several LAMI staff and volunteers for their organization. Captain Gladson then introduces Captain Steve Peckham who delivers a riveting presentation about the organization’s crisis response followed by experienced advice for others. This is a must listen! (31 mins)

This recording was made possible by a grant from the T.K. Foundation. The entire recording for the 2005 ASTA Safety at Sea Forum will soon be available on the ASTA Tall Ships Wiki.
We hope that you will join us for more poweful presentations like the one above and the unparalleleded networking opportunities that are central to the ASTA Conference.
Finally, we are very interested in your thoughts and ideas and we encourage you to post your comments here or email us. (Staff directory can be found in the right column.)
