VI Mid-Island Presentation Nov 16 - Homeward Bound via Japan and Korea

Jim Burgoyne and Lynne Picard sailed Quiver, their Vancouver 27, from Thailand in 2009, taking two and a half years to sail home to Victoria. Share the final leg of their adventure as they head north to Japan, wintering in Korea, returning to Japan and the Inland Sea before Jim made a solo crossing of the North Pacific. The land, seascapes, experiences, food, history, culture were so much more than expected, and the cruising friends and locals met along the way were warm, helpful and humbling.

Jim Burgoyne and Lynne Picard sailed Quiver, their Vancouver 27, from Thailand in early 2009, taking two and a half years to sail home to Victoria.

Jim was an editor at the Bangkok Post newspaper when he bought Quiver there in 2001. A few years later, Lynne came to Bangkok to teach English. Having been friends back in Winnipeg as teenagers, it was only natural that they meet up... and, well, they hooked up. Lynne wasn't a sailor, but agreed, maybe naively, to sail back to Canada with Jim, learning the ropes along the way.

Share the final leg of their adventure as they leave the Philippines and head north to Japan, wintering in Korea, returning to Japan and sailing the spectacular Inland Sea before Jim set off for a solo crossing of the North Pacific. The land and seascapes, cruising experiences, food, history and culture were so much more than expected, and the cruising friends and locals met along the way were astonishingly warm, helpful and humbling.
