GCSC Meeting, Wed., April 8
starting at 6pm with light refreshments:
"Italian Festival"
+ Awards from the 39th GCSC REGATTA!

A 36,650-mile Cruise
    Leaving Monroe Harbor in Chicago, in 2008, Jane and Marc Adams in their early 40's, with their three children, had set out with expectations to sail and see the world. They had said "If they were fortunate they would sail around it" and they did. With perserverance and determination, they fulfilled their dream completing their circumnavigation in four years.
    Marc and Jane will discuss what it was like to make the difficult decisions to embark on their adventure to begin with, to the obstacles and struggles of life aboard, including the very real threat of piracy and all the joys experienced as a family and also how it affected their shore lives today. This presentation is sure to entertain and cover topics of interest to any sailor, adventurer, or wannabe cruiser and perhaps motivate others to' live their dream".

The regatta promises to be one of SWFL’s best regattas. Whether you are a competitive racer, a recreational sailor, someone who loves being around the water or someone who cares about the good work that Avow Hospice does for families in southwest Florida, come join us.
All are invited.
Brian MacInnes will return as our guest speaker at our Regatta dinner on March 28 at the Naples Sailing and Yacht Club. Having sailed in Transatlantic and Transpacific races including the Volvo series, Brian will share some of his experiences from these races.
