If you are in Vancouver join us for a presentation by David Greer on our Atlantic Adventure. Here are the details:

Location: Royal Vancouver Yacht Club
Address: 3811 Point Grey Road, Vancouver, BC

Presentation: 7:30 PM

In 2013, four guys sailed Dick and Marian Leighton’s Prout 39 catamaran Van Kedisi more than 2,800 NM across the Atlantic Ocean from the Canary Islands to Barbados. Crossing oceans with your spouse is one thing, but what about when the spouses can’t or don’t want to cross an ocean? This presentation covers the ups and downs of how Dick, his 21-year old son Andy, and friends Rick Lane and David Greer coped with living together, sailing, and dealing with boat issues as we sailed across the Atlantic, including an emergency stop in the Cape Verde Islands.

David Greer started sailing before he was a teenager taking CYA lessons at Pigeon Lake in Alberta while racing fireball sailboats with his Dad. With his wife Karalee Greer, they have owned four boats traveling up and down BC’s coast. In 2001, they commissioned a sailboat in the south of France and for two years home schooled their three children while sailing more than 5,000 NM in the Mediterranean. David writes and presents extensively on sailing, passage making, and family living on a sailboat.
