Salty Speaker #1: How to Sail to New Zealand in 5 Easy Steps.

Harry & Joy Crossing the Equator

Harry Pattison and Joy Archer recently completed a 2-year circumnavigation of the Pacific Ocean aboard their Mason 44, Oh Joy II. They'll share their story in a presentation titled "How to sail to New Zealand in five easy steps." Their journey took them south to Mexico, across the Pacific to French Polynesia, American Samoa, Fiji, and New Zealand. Their return path was New Zealand to Tonga to Tuvalu to the Republic of Marshall Islands. From the Marshalls they sailed 5,000 miles and 35 days north to Sitka, Alaska, a longer passage than most cruisers might volunteer for. Whether you're planning your own voyage or not, this "how-to" will give you a clear picture of the thrills and risks of cruising in the South Pacific.

This is a potluck event. 

Please bring potluck food and beverages to share - main dishes are particularly appreciated!
