Cruise with Confidence: Join Experienced Boaters as They Share Their Secrets


Monday, March 17, 2008

Join expert sailors Anne & Laurence Yeadon-Jones for a lively presentation of personal cruising experiences during their Sunshine Coast Tour. They will be presenting a slideshow and talk about sailing the following regions at these locations:

Cruising the San Juan Islands at the Powell River Public Library, 4411 Michigan Avenue, Powell River, BC on Tuesday, March 25 at 7:00pm

Cruising the San Juan Islands at the Gibsons District Public Library, 470 South Fletcher Road, Gibsons, BC on Wednesday, March 26 at 7:00pm

A Summer in the Broughtons at the Sechelt Public Library, 5797 Cowrie Street, Sechelt, BC on Thursday, March 27 at 7:00pm

The presentations focus on where to cruise, with colour photography and stories about the Yeadon-Jones’s own adventures that are sure to entertain and inform both the serious sailor and armchair traveller.

The Yeadon-Jones’s Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides offer charts, tips and data that will enhance the enjoyment and safety of any voyage. These popular cruising companions feature informative drawings of selected marina shorelines and small boat anchorages, ranging from safe all-weather havens to secluded picnic spots and marine parks. Aerial photographs illustrate safe approaches to the destinations, while full-colour scenic photographs showcase the splendour of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Intended to complement official hydrographic charts, the guides accurately pinpoint both popular and little-known highlights in BC and Pacific Northwest coastal waters that every sailor, power boater, or kayaker should know.
