pamPamela York on the Cruising Lifestyle

Sunday, January 11th 7pm–9pm

Want to know what it’s like to sail around the world and live on your boat? OCSC members Pamela York and Dennis Maggard will be sharing stories in our bay-view clubroom.

“One moment you’re saying hello to a pod of dolphins who welcome you into the harbor after you’ve sailed for twenty-seven days.  The next moment the bilge pump has broken, the floorboards are floating in salt water, and you’ve run out of drinkable red wine.”

Thursday, January 22nd 6:30pm-8:30pm

It is possible to be a long term cruising sailor to never spend more than a night or two at sea out of sight of land.  For those whose ambitions take them farther afield, however, there will be days, weeks and, heaven forbid, the occasional month on a small boat with nary a glimpse of terra firma. Even though the days at sea will never be more than a tiny fraction of the time spent cruising, they are the days where skills count the most. Harley will give his thoughts on these short, but critical, stints in the cruising life. After the presentation, Harley Jennifer and Sophia will field questions on their thoughts and experiences ranging from weather to home school, sea sickness to navigation and anything else the audience cares to bring up
