Dina was the skipper who kept going, both with and without husband first-mate Malcolm aboard.  In 2013, with BCA Dreamers as crew, she departed for San Francisco. Malcolm arrived for the sail to Mexico and across the Pacific to Noumea. With a friend from another cruising boat, Dina took Good as Gold from Noumea to Bundaberg, Australia, where the boat is currently located.  

 

Hear about why they chose their routes and the conditions they encountered. Get information on hauling and storing a boat in both Tonga and Vanuatu, both excellent options to consider, along with the experience of clearing Customs in Australia and other adventures!

 

Doors open at 7:00pm and the presentation will begin at 7:30pm.  The bar will be open - come early for conversation and information.

 

BCA Members $5, Non-members $10
