March Meeting: Sail on an Ocean Adventure

It’s many a sailor’s dream: Cast off and sail the islands of the Pacific with no schedule. At the AYC March monthly meeting, Sharon and Steve Hendricks of Tucson will tell us how they did it, a six-year journey that they say included an almost-devastating storm and a pirate encounter off Columbia, but was highlighted by beautiful and enchanting islands and wonderful people.
