Next Mon. May 16th – Nancy Erley Captain of Two World Circumnavigations with All Women Crews – Ten Things I Wish I Knew Before I Went Cruising

Please invite other boating gals you may know and you will need to RSVP at for this program to allow proper setup, thank you.

Ten Things I Wish I Knew Before I Went Cruising – What it is really like to pry yourself away and be “out there”.  The time between the blissful and the rare harrowing moments.  Life at sea in all its color, comedy and profoundness.

Boating, power or sail, is character building at all levels. All of you will agree the activity has taught you much and challenged you. You’ve built confidence that has carried over into all areas of your lives. Those attending will be inspired by a woman who, through all her achievements, was presented with the Leadership in Women’s Sailing Award sponsored by BoatUS and the National Women’s Sailing Association. The award honors a male or female who has built a record of achievement in inspiring, educating and enriching the lives of women through sailing.

Nancy Erley’s Bio:

Nancy Erley was captain of Two World Circumnavigations. She led two voyages from Seattle around the world aboard her Orca 38 sailboat, Tethys.

“As the skipper of an all-woman crew, Nancy fashioned a circumnavigation that should go down in the record books as one of the soundest, most seamanlike journeys in the modern cruising era. Like all competent voyages, Tethys circumnavigation was notable for its lack of disasters.”    George Day, publisher Blue Water Sailing magazine.

Nancy holds her USCG 100-ton Master of Ocean license, is an Instructor Evaluator-Ocean for the International Sail and Power Association and she is an advanced scuba diver and delivery skipper.
