After three years of planning, BCA members Bill and Gabriela Eisenhauer took their two kids out of school, rented the house in Victoria and set off on a 15-month journey from Sardinia to Greece. On their 12-metre ketch, they rediscovered living in the moment while setting course for ancient sites, buzzing harbours, and dramatic nature.
This presentation will take you to Sardinia, Corsica, and Elba before sailing in the wake of Odysseus from Sicily to Ithaca. Along the way, you will explore lost civilizations, hike old footpaths, and be stunned by the natural fireworks of one of Europe’s most active volcanoes. You will even learn how to make olive oil. These are just a few of the surprises that await modern-day seafarers propelled by the winds of antiquity.
Please join us for our first presentation of the fall and enjoy the Mediterranean!
