SPIRIT OF CRUISING - Tuesday 1 August 2017
CYCA Rani Room — 6.30pm
Guest Speakers; Evan Hodge and Kelly Clark of Nashira, a Bavaria Ocean 40, share their passion, preparation and anxiety as they prepared for their first cruising adventure to Tasmania.
Very new to yachting Evan, who had experience sailing dinghies and skiffs as a young boy, faced new challenges sailing as an 'above knee' amputee and Kelly having never sailed, embarked on a 6 day sailing course which ultimately changed the trajectory of their lives. They bought Nashira 3 months later.
Two and a half years after buying the boat they headed off on a 10 week adventure to Tasmania, crossing Bass Strait, sailing down the East Coast, then down and around to Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour.
They will share stories and photos of their trip including the preparation around safety, communications, victualing, route and weather planning and the anxiety of the unknown.
$30.00 for Spirit of Cruising dinner and meeting in the Rani Room.
Bookings close – Monday 31 July, 12:00pm
