Sunset Seminar: Cruising the Pacific Northwest
July 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Randy and Fiona Woods, former CYC members when choosing Camden Harbor as their home port, will share their past three-year experience cruising the Pacific Northwest at 7:00 pm Wednesday, July 28, at Camden Yacht Club and via Zoom.
The Woods’ presentation will be made from aboard their Grand Banks Aleutian somewhere in the Pacific Northwest and will feature lively photographic narration of lessons learned, tidal tales and wilderness escapades aboard Jupiter while navigating the Inside and Outside Passages.
The Woods spent 15 seasons exploring Down East Maine waters prior to relocating to the vast waters of Washington, British Columbia and Southeast Alaska. They whetted their nautical interests in 1991 operating a 13-foot Boston Whaler as an all-purpose tender to a rustic and remote island home on a 28-acre island in the British Virgin Islands. After learning which end of that boat to point in the direction of travel, they found utility and joy in larger and more complex vessels to service their growing family and necessities of island life.
The couple hold USCG 100 Ton Masters Certificates and are members of the USCG Auxiliary in Key Largo, Florida. They are avid mariners, taking particular interest in the tidal seas they navigate, and in the surprising coastal communities they visit.
They have four children and four grandchildren. Their interests in travel, food, photography and writing can be found in a madcap record of their experiences in the Pacific Northwest at https://jupitersway.com/.
