I am going to do a presentation at the Vancouver Boat Show.
Rescue Me – Are You Ready?
Yachtmaster Offshore Cruising Instructor / Instructor Evaluator
"Rescue Me – Are You Ready?"
Jack was the return delivery skipper on Turicum, a Vic - Maui boat, during a medical evacuation to an 1100 foot container ship 1040 miles north of Hawaii in August, 2012. The presentation discusses both the evacuation, with video from our perspective and from the container ship, and the role of the Automated Mutual-assistance VEssel Rescue System (AMVER) in marine rescues.
Jack Dale has sailed for 30 years. In that time he was accrued over 36,000 miles. 10,000 miles of that are passages including three Vic-Maui returns and a delivery from Newport RI to St Barths via Bermuda. He has circumnavigated Vancouver Island 12 times, once on the 2007 Van Isle 360. His race experience also includes 3 Swiftsure races. His cruising grounds have included Turkey, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and the Pacific North West. For the past two decades Jack has been a cruising instructor.

If any SN folks are around, I would love to put a face to usernames.
I am only there for the day. I have to get back home to referee a squash tournament.
