RVYC’s First 2020 Sailing Cruising DinnerJanuary 16, 2020
A Delivery Crew’s Voyage from Puerto Rico to Victoria via French Polynesia
The question: To ship or sail John and Judie Abel’s 49’ sailboat, AP Over Eh, from the Caribbean to Victoria?
Vern Burkhardt and Steve Illman, who sailed the whole distance, will reveal to you all the planning required to be delivery crew: safety, navigation plans, weather forecasting, provisioning, watch keeping, and solving the inevitable repairs required along the way.
You will vicariously experience crossing the Panama Canal with a stop in the Galapagos Islands to experience what Charles Darwin saw 184 years ago. You will visit the Marquesas to experience isolated islands, and what had been planned to be a brief stop in Hawaii. And, of course, there’s the sailing—day after day in good and challenging weather, mostly good.
