Vancouver Virtual Club Night - A Family of Five on a Seven Year Loop Around the Pacific

Your living room

09 Sep 2020 1900h - 2200h  

Members $0 / Non-Members $0

Starting out as a family of four and then growing to five, the Shaw’s embarked on a seven year, 36,000 nautical mile, adventure-of-a-lifetime around the Pacific where they faced dirty diapers at sea, maintenance in exotic locations and uncharted reefs.

Max and Elizabeth spent most of their adult lives in the Canadian Forces, but after 23 years decided they needed a new adventure, and one they could share with their children, so they sold their house, purged their possessions and went sailing with their two young children.  They have spent the last seven years traveling some 36,000nm in the Pacific with what is now their family of five.  Both Max and Elizabeth started their sailing with the RYA while in the UK.  Max is a Sail Canada Advanced Cruising Instructor and holds an RYA Yachtmaster Ocean/200 GT Master of Yachts certificate.  They now run Fluenta Marine Services helping others prepare for their own adventures.

This will be a Virtual Club Night, on the Zoom platform.  An invitation with links to the Zoom meeting and login details will be sent to all Vancouver Chapter members.  BCA members from other chapters and non-members are also welcome to attend. If you would like to attend please send an email to Heather to receive an invitation.
