When most people think about visiting Alaska on their boat, they think of seeing the Inside Passage. This presentation is about another Alaska, to the West and to the North – wilder, grander and with more wildlife than the Alaska with which you might be more familiar. It is this Alaska that we’ll be talking about in this presentation.

Larry Roberts and Mary Anne Unrau have been sailing all over the world aboard Traversay III, their Waterline 43 cutter.   Since they first launched her 21 years ago, they have sailed 120,000+ miles, crossed every meridian, sailed south to Antarctica, north to Spitzbergen, squeezed through the ice in the Northwest Passage and sailed to Townsville, Australia non-stop from Victoria, so they could do some scuba diving and continue to explore the islands around Australia. Their Pacific circuit took them out to the Coral Sea and over to New Zealand before heading across to Valdivia and Puerto Natales, Chile, before heading home to Victoria via Honolulu.  Mary Anne is the author of a book about their voyages: Around the World with Traversay III.
