The second of the 2019 Ocean Cruising Adventure Series is a presentation by BCA members Jim Shortreed and Andrea England.

By means of photographs, Andrea’s artwork and stories, they’ll share Jim’s preparations for sailing the South Pacific aboard his Old Man’s 36-foot boat Island Prism and their serendipitous meeting on the tropical island of Vava’u, Tonga. Adventure abounds solo sailing across the Pacific, island hopping through paradise, all the while learning how to survive on a small boat. Find out about Jim’s non-stop 68-night solo sail from Thailand to New Zealand. Discover how to sail across the Pacific the wrong way, see how Andrea found her passion for art reignited by cruising life and learn how to survive on a small boat with no means to chill your wine. There’s also a love story.

Tickets are available online and at the door.  The price of admission includes a slice of gourmet pizza; bar service includes wine and beer.
