Catching Up

Haro Strait on a beautiful September day


I’ve been working in Vancouver for the last several weeks. After several years off sailing, I’m enjoying working (in computers) again. While I expect the novelty may at some point wear off :) , I’m enjoying it now.

Issuma is still docked in Victoria, which is 5-7 hours from Vancouver by bus/train/ferry. I plan to move her closer to Vancouver later this month.

Upcoming Presentations:
* Cruising the Coast of Brazil, Thursday Jan 17, 7:30PM, for the Tiddly Cove Yacht Club and the VancouverBoaters Meetup group.
* Cruising the Coast of Brazil, Thursday, Feb 7, 2PM, Vancouver Boat Show
* Sailing the Northwest Passage, Friday, Feb 8, 8PM, Vancouver Boat Show

  1. Hi Richard,
    How can you be so far away from Issuma? :) Look forward to hear more updates on it. Best wishes and Happy New Year 2013!

  2. Hi Richard.

    Ruthie & Sylvia here getting ready to go out to eat to celebrate Sylvia’s 85th birthday. Come if you
    can. We’d love to have you, but won’t wait long!

    Congratulations on your new job, glad you’re happy, so are we. Love, Ruthie & Sylvia

  3. Richard,

    Have you given any thought to scheduling a presentation in the Seattle area? The 2013 boat show perhaps. Found you website late last night after watching a National Geographic show about a family from the Falklands. I went looking for info on their boat and found your sight.

    Sincerely,

    Dave

  4. Hey, Richard!

    Great to hear you’re keeping busy and enjoying life on the land! Vancouver and Victoria are two places I’ve always planned on visiting someday. I’ve been thinking fondly of my days on Issuma.

    All the best,
    AM

  5. Dave,
    Thanks very much for the suggestion. I did talk briefly with the Seattle boat show about presenting there, but neither of us was all that interested :) . I don’t have any business or other reasons bringing me to Seattle at the moment, so haven’t really given much thought to presenting there.
