It is my great honor to have been selected to speak at the Anocortes Trawlerfest, May 17-19. http://www.passagemaker.com/events-series/trawler-fest-anacortes I have attended many Trawlerfest’s and now I get to give back to the cruising community.
I will focus on the nuts and bolts of making a long distance passage but more so on addressing the fears that keep most of us from taking their dream voyage. After two and half years, 20,000 miles and fourteen countries, I have found that most of the things I was afraid of just do not exist or can be avoided easily. It is the fear itself that holds us back.
I look forward to seeing many of you at these events. If you are considering taking the big jump I would be glad to spend time with you individually also, just let me know. Look for the very tan guy with the big smile shivering in the cold.
