Vancouver Club Night - October 10, 2018 7pm

Northwest Passage Adventures

 

 

Please join us for our October Club night for a presentation from Laurence Roberts and Mary Anne Unrau on their travels with Traversay III.

Since her first launch, Traversay III has sailed over 120,000 miles crossing many meridian and reaching latitudes from 65 South on the Antarctic Peninsula to 80 North at the northwest tip of Spitsbergen.  Ports of Call have included such diverse spots as Pitcairn, South Georgia, Hamburg, Darwin and the Northwest Passage with lots of places between.

In 2013 they sailed from St. Katharines Marina, London in late March and voyaged to Victoria, British Columbia in October via south English ports, the Irish Sea, the Hebrides, Iceland, Greenland, the Northwest Passage and Alaska.

Their most recent voyage started and ended at the Causeway Marina, Victoria between May 2 2016 and June 1 2018. This Pacific circuit included a first stop in Townsville Australia and continued with stops for scuba diving out in the Coral Sea and stays in Sydney, Nelson New Zealand, Valdivia and Puerto Natales Chile, Hawaii and the many memorable locations in between.

Larry is a retired Air Canada pilot and Mary Anne is a retired pianist and music educator. The couple have made their home aboard their boat since 2001 and will be based at the Causeway Marina in Victoria BC during the coming winter.

Traversay III is a Waterline 43 designed by Ed Rutherford and built of steel at Sidney, British Columbia in 2000.  She is cutter rigged with roller furled genoa and hanked on stays’l. She is 45 feet overall with a 13 ½ foot beam and 7 ½ foot draft.
