NWWB Nov. 17th program: Single-handing The Inside Passage – Anne Cox Offers Us What It Was Like

We are pleased to bring another program filled with interesting and valuable information to those of us who love being on the water. This program features member Anne Cox who will tell you what it was like for a single woman, fairly new to powerboating, to take her boat solo up the Inside Passage to Sitka and back.

Anne will talk about:

How her expectations were the same or different from the reality.

How she prepared herself and her boat.

There were challenges along the way docking, anchoring, navigating rapids, facing varied weather and dealing with electronics and navigation. There were mistakes and triumphs and she’s glad she didn’t listen to those who cautioned, “You shouldn’t try it alone.”

Bring questions and enjoy beautiful photos from her trip.

Anne Cox is an enthusiastic kayaker and long-time outdoor enthusiast and activist, including appointment by Governor Booth Gardner to the Washington State Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation and the Washington State Parks Commission. In 2008, desiring more long-range on the water experience she bought a power boat. She now lives aboard her 29’ Ranger Tug enjoying new found confidence from her single-hand adventure during the summer of 2014. .
