Please join us for our upcoming club night, November 19, 2020.  The Zoom Room will open at 7pm and the presentation will begin at 7:30.

Stefa Katamay and Jürgen Harding spent three years preparing themselves and their Tayana 37 Mazu for an offshore voyage from Victoria to San Francisco and then the coastal hop to the Sea of Cortez. Over that time, it wasn’t just the sights that produced awe, wonder and delight.

Recognizing and managing anxiety, identifying communication issues and solutions, managing themselves and sharing leadership on the boat were transformative experiences. Join Stefa as she takes us to the places visited that we rarely talk about – the places we journey to within ourselves while cruising.

Stefa and Jürgen came to big boat ownership in 2014 when they bought and moved aboard Mazu. Both came from small boat sailing in Ontario – Stefa owned and maintained an international 420 and dabbled in windsurfing; Jürgen windsurfed competitively from 1979 – 1992 and maintained a 26’ Nash.

Once Mazu was in their lives, both Stefa and Jürgen threw themselves at courses and experiences to develop their big boat skills in tandem. In 2017 Stefa and Jürgen sailed Mazu to Mexico where she now sits on the hard. Last year Stefa and Jürgen returned to Canada to settle in Victoria where Stefa subsequently qualified as a Retirement Options™ Coach and is now helping others transition to new challenges.

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 Island Chapter members.  BCA members from other chapters and non-members are also welcome to attend.
