VI Mid-Island Presentation Jan 18 - Northern and Southern Europe

Join Kevin and his son Richard as they set sail in May 2017 from Orust, Sweden on their 40’ Halberg Rassy sloop Ocean Dream, heading for the Mediterranean. Crossing the Baltic, the North Sea, the English Channel, the Bay of Biscay, before heading through the Strait of Gibraltar, they experienced varied weather but found many nice warm pubs along the way! They changed crew a few times, with stops in the UK, Portugal, Spain, Sardinia, Italy, finishing in Prevesa, (Ionion) Greece in November.

One of VI Mid-Island Group’s own, Kevin Bourgeois is no longer a Dreamer…but a Doer, having just completed the first leg of his sailing adventure in Northern and Southern Europe.

Join Kevin and his son Richard as they set sail in May 2017 from Orust, Sweden on their 40’ Halberg Rassy sloop Ocean Dream, heading for the Mediterranean.  Crossing the Baltic, the North Sea, the English Channel, the Bay of Biscay, before heading through the Strait of Gibraltar, they experienced varied weather but found many nice warm pubs along the way!  They changed crew a few times, with stops in the UK, Portugal, Spain, Sardinia, Italy, finishing in Prevesa, (Ionion) Greece in November.

Join us January 18 for all the details - including importing a boat to Canada from Europe, dealing with officials in various countries, boat improvements and additions for going offshore, problems/issues that occurred and what Kevin would do differently!
