Jordan and Judy Mills left Victoria in September, 2009 on their 35 ft. cutter, Sea Turtle IV, for what they expected to be a five year west-about circumnavigation. Eight years later, these two BCA Members have sailed over 40,000 nautical miles and have visited some fascinating places including Easter Island and southern Chile, Galapagos, the South Pacific, New Zealand, Indonesia and South-East Asia. When they make landfall, they often explore by motorcycle to improve their understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of an area.

More recently their adventures have been in S.E. Asia where they not only cruised about, but again ventured boldly on motorcycles through countries like Laos, Cambodia, and even up in the Himalayas of India. Their latest ocean passage took them from Thailand, across the Arabian Sea, past the Horn of Africa, up the Red Sea, through the Suez Canal, and into the Med. These adventurous sailors plan to return to Sea Turtle IV in her berth in the Greek Islands this May and take the next two or three years to sail her back home to Victoria!

Jordan and Judy are looking forward to presenting a slideshow of their sailing and travel adventures that have taken them three-quarters of the way around the world.
