Amanda and her husband, Barry, have been sailing together since 1997. After sailing the Sea of Cortez together, following John Steinbeck’s book “The Log of the Sea of Cortez”, they embarked on a voyage to circumnavigate South America, following the route of Darwin…backwards. Their destinations included the Galapagos, Easter Island, Cape Horn (where they lived for 2 years), Antarctica, Isla de los Estados, and the Falkland Islands. They have circumnavigated the Black Sea, sailed the Eastern Mediterranean, where they found their boat, Papa Rumba and cruised Greece, Italy and Malta, before dragging her home to BC to explore this amazing coast.
Now resident on Cortes Island and officially retired from the University of Victoria, they plan to continue cruising the spectacular Pacific Northwest.
We look forward to her presentation at WOW 2017 on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
