If you are contemplating a circumnavigation, or any big sailing adventure, you’ll want to attend the April BCA Club Night! Michael and Anne Hartshorn will present an illustrated talk about their sailing career:
“We purchased our yacht for a ten year circumnavigation in 2004 and set off in 2008. Moving on another 10 years and more than 30,000 nautical miles cruising, we have visited some amazing destinations and our yacht is now in Vancouver Island, B.C. We are still not even half way and planning our eleventh year cruise to Alaska. With the Pacific still to cross and a potential trip up the Red Sea in years to come, who knows how long our circumnavigation will take!”
Since leaving on their trip, Michael and Anne have been on a continual learning curve and gained many new experiences. Some of the questions they hope to answer for BCA members and guests include:
- Did they ‘over ready’ their yacht with equipment before leaving?
- Were their expectations different from reality?
- Why is it taking them so much longer than intended?
Come listen to them as they share their adventure!
