    Amanda and John Neal will cover sailing opportunities offered around the world with lots of photos. You’ll learn what to consider when choosing a sailing expedition plus how to determine what’s important for the next phases of growth and learning in sailing. If your focus is adventure sailing, there are many opportunities on numerous vessels worldwide. These range from crewing for someone on an ocean passage to being a paying guest on an old race boat or tall ship. They will also discuss sail-training expeditions where you are taught valuable fundamentals and skills enabling you to sail your own boat.

    Amanda completed the Whitbread Race as rigger aboard Maiden, has 345,000 miles of offshore experience and is author of Marine Diesel Engine Essentials and The Essential Galley Companion. John is author, co-author or contributing author of 17 books and his 388,000 offshore miles include six Cape Horn roundings and expeditions to Antarctica, Africa, Australia and Spitsbergen. Amanda and John spend seven months at sea sailing 10,000 miles annually conducting sail-training expeditions in the South Pacific aboard Mahina Tiare III, their Hallberg-Rassy 46 or in the Pacific Northwest aboard Obelix, a Garcia Exploration 45. When not at sea, they enjoy winter kayaking from their island home at Roche Harbor. Their website is: www.mahina.com and they can be contacted at sailing@mahina.com.

    Topic: 

    COVID Summer in The San Juans

    Mike McGuane & Karen Mooney, m/v Rissa, and Mara & Greg Barckert, s/v Mara  

    Mike and Karen spent four months working from their boat in the San Juan Islands last summer.   Join them as they share tips for staying sane when your salon is also your office, the eternal search for internet connectivity, managing hotspot data, favorite locations and their ongoing attempts to improve workspace ergonomics.


    Mara and Greg usually head to Desolation Sound for a month every summer but the border closure kept them in the San Juan’s in 2020. They spent time on their Buchan 37 along with Mara’s parents and sister's family on their J40; and, even rafted up with a few other friends while maintaining social distance.  They will share favorite spots to anchor for exploring with kids onboard and ways to manage cabin fever when socializing is limited.
