Tricia and Jim Bowen
Join Tricia and Jim Bowen as they share photos, videos and adventure stories of their more than 8,000 miles of boating in Southeast Alaska’s remote and wild cruising grounds. They’ll highlight their time spent in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, the many rugged west coast anchorages they’ve enjoyed, their close encounters with wildlife and the extraordinary people they’ve met. They’ll also touch on preparation and logistics for those wanting the challenge of heading north.
Tricia’s articles have been published in Pacific Yachting Magazine, Currents Magazine, the Times Colonist Newspaper and numerous newsletters. Jim’s racing experience led to the position of helmsman on the HMCS Oriole in the Victoria – Maui Yacht Race. They have cruised together for the past 25 years, during which time they have circumnavigated Vancouver Island twice, cruised to SE Alaska three times, and enjoyed countless summer trips up and down BC’s west coast.
