Sequitur - To Cape Horn in Comfort and Style

To those in the Vancouver area:



Next Wednesday Edi and I are the presenters at the Bluewater Cruising Association's monthly club night. The hour-and-a-half presentation will focus on the third year of our voyage, which took us from Puerto Montt, Chile, down through Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, around Cape Horn and beyond. We will look at cruising in comfort and style through remote regions, wild weather and unpredictable bureaucracies.

1900 Wednesday 09 January - Scottish Cultural Centre 8886 Hudson Street
$5 Members - $10 Guests

Cheers,
Michael

If you show all those pictures with your food, everyone will be leaving hungry! Good luck on the presentation.

Too far, but looking forward to hearing more about the canal boat.

Re: Sequitur - To Cape Horn in Comfort and Style

My wife and I, along with some cruising friends with whom we'd spent some time in Mexico, attended the BWCA seminar put on by Michael and Edi last night in Vancouver.

A shame that the business portion of the meeting started late and ran long (as they so often do), leaving short time for the presentation which played to a truly 'packed house'.. as a result it was at times rushed, and in the end cut off early. But in any event it was a delight. Great to hear the stories and get some more perspective than that of the (excellent) blog reports, and it was very nice to meet them both in person.

It was a complete report, with lots of pictures, plotter/ipad/radar screen shots, overview maps and charts, with the occasional shot of an immaculately presented dinner plate, fresh brewed coffee, local breads... it was a good thing we came straight from dinner.

Good to meet you, Michael, and Edi.. sorry we had to dash before saying goodbye, and Thanks for sharing.

Sorry I missed it!!!

Is there going to be another presentation in the Northeast?
