In 2001 Barrie and Sandra Letts purchased “their” perfect world cruiser, Passat II. Since July 1, 2007 they have sailed the coasts of North America from the top of Pit Island (Prince Rupert) to Fredericton, NB (via the Panama Canal), spent 4 seasons in the NW Caribbean, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, circumnavigated the North Sea, cruised the Atlantic Coast of Europe and sailed the Western Mediterranean.
Following the experience of a tense night passage from Tangier to Gibraltar, join Barrie and Sandra as they lead us through three seasons of sailing in the Western Mediterranean, visiting the Islas Baleares (Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca) Spain; Sargegna (Sardinia), Italy; Corse (Corsica) France; Elba and Sicilia (Sicily) in Italy, and Malta.
They will discuss their adventures, passages, anchorages, marinas, weather, history, culture, friends and – food and wine!!
Doors open at 7:00 pm and presentation will begin at 7:30 pm. Bar will be open – come early to enjoy conversation and camaraderie.
Barrie and Sandra Letts started cruising the BC coast in the mid 1990’s aboard their 26 ft Micmac pocket cruiser, Moonshadow. As a Millennium project they completed a 32 day circumnavigation of Vancouver Island. In 2001 they purchased Passat II, a Stan Huntingford Tradewind 34 (aka True North 34). They have been BCA Members since February, 2006 (Fleet of 2007) and both have earned BCA Coastal 999 and Offshore awards.
