Cruising Dinner  ::  Cruising & Dinners

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?
The answer: three sailors along with other crew joining various legs made an 11,000-mile voyage lasting five months.

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.
