NWWB Meeting Mon., Oct. 21st Learn From A Legend – Nancy Erley

Several RSVP’s can’t make it now, there’s room if you’d enjoy this program. RSVP to nwwbviv@gmail.com

You will not want to miss an evening with two-time circumnavigator, Nancy Erley. Down from Port Townsend, she is a consummate storyteller and entertainer. RSVP’s at nwwbviv@gmail.com are necessary; our room holds 35 any past that will be put on a waiting list.

There are so many things to learn as boaters but often lost in our learning is that many things that will happen will be out of the ordinary with no easy answers. Can we step up? What does it take to respond effectively when you are faced with circumstances you’ve not encountered before – that maybe no one has encountered before?

At the center of the evening Nancy will share the most unusual tale of all tales of her 11 years of cruising, known as “The 40 Camels Story”. Her goal is that it can be a pivotal point  in the evening for all of you to look beyond the ‘skills’ we’re all seeking as we become better boaters. Nancy will share some of how she responded to those ‘impossible” moments. She would like us to talk about our defining, more memorable and life changing moments; times on the water that required us to turn inward because there were no “answers from the books”. And for those with less time on the water, it will be an opportunity to consider that there are going to be times when all you may have to turn to are instincts and judgements from within.

There is much to learn about Nancy at her website Tethys Offshore. She is a two-time circumnavigator with all women crews onboard her Orca 38 sailboat, Tethys. Nancy now teaches and inspires throughout the region and beyond. She teaches women onboard Tethys in the San Juans and Gulf Islands. Nancy holds her USCG 50-ton Master of Oceans and 100-ton Master Near Coastal licenses, is an Instructor Evaluator-Ocean for the International Sail and Power Association, a ham radio operator KI7DP, and an advanced scuba diver and delivery skipper.
