Join Brian Short as he regales his audience about his voyage down from Vancouver Island to the Sea of Cortez this past winter.

Start with the jump to San Francisco then follow the harbour hopping to Cabo san Lucas, La Paz, Mazatlán, La Cruz and San Blas with many stops in between. Brian travelled with crew for part, with his first mate Glenda, and also sailed alone. His 45’ Beneteau Oceanis Carpe Ventus mostly held together for the trip with the occasional, nay, frequent trips to the chandleries for parts and repairs. 

Come and hear tales of woe and ecstasy, see pictures of this great West Coast voyage, and learn a bit of the psychology of voyaging. Is this trip right for you? Brian will try to help you answer that question.
