After a very well-received presentation about the first half of their trip, this next presentation covers the second part of the circumnavigation by Glen and Mary on their catamaran, Danica. They survived a medical emergency at sea, participated in the rescue of a de-masted catamaran in the Indian ocean, experienced an African safari, and were a part of carnaval. They covered a lot of sea miles and arrived home as COVID-19 was taking control.

Glen has been a member of BCA for more than 15 years and served as the VI Vice Commodore for four years. After some personal setbacks he was able to press restart and, with Mary, purchased a catamaran in Turkey. They named her Danica, meaning early morning light in Slovenian.

A trip around the world is no small feat and required Glen and Mary to overcome some major obstacles but what an adventure it was! The voyage started in Turkey and led to St Lucia, where they joined the World ARC in January 2019. They visited 27 countries and had many adventures. This second presentation covers the completion of their wonderful adventure.
