In this way we can advise the yacht club in advance of how many CCA members to expect. Steve should hear from you no later than Thursday, January 4 , and earlier if possible.
The program for the meeting is: "Saving the World, One Ocean at a Time". It should be extremely interesting. The speakers will be David Thoreson and Joseph Robertson. Thoreson, an Explorers Club Fellow, was the first American to sail the Northwest Passage in both directions. He has some 65,000 miles of sailing experience, including a passage below the Antarctic Circle, two roundings of Cape Horn, three Transatlantic crossings, six passages over the Arctic Circle and a 28,000 miles circumnavigation of North and South America. He has published and spoken widely. Robertson is the Founder of the Geoversiv Foundation and Global Strategy Director of the Citizens' Climate Lobby. He and David Thoreson work together in global efforts to preserve our oceans and the planet.
