"BLUE WATER CRUISING" via Your own Boat or a Chartered Boat
Come hear from Rob and Andi Overton, seasoned experts in offshore sailing, on how to prepare to go offshore cruising. You will learn what kind of boat is appropriate, what equipment is needed, and what it costs to cruise. This will be a two-part discussion on sailing, equipping, and provisioning your own boat, as well as what is entailed in chartering a boat. So, whether you have never cruised, cruised once or twice, or you are an experienced cruiser, there is still much to be gained from Rob and Andi’s knowledge and experience. We hope to see you there!
In 2001, Rob and Andi Overton set sail from Hampton, Virginia, on their 50’ sailboat to go bluewater cruising. Fifteen years and more than 26,000 nautical miles later, they’re still “Living the Dream.” As full-time cruisers, they have spent days and sometimes weeks out of sight of land; but also weeks or months at a time in distant anchorages and marinas, where they made friends from around the world. Along the way, they learned many lessons about the joys and challenges of life aboard a cruising sailboat.
