PSCC Meeting May 19th, Friday 7:30pm at NSC
Speaker: Jim Shutt - Returning from the South Pacific

Apropros in Hole   Jim with Fish
Karen (KW), Jim and daugther Jacintha, a local family of three, took a year off to sail Mexico and the South Pacific on a Hans Christian 43T ketch, s/v Apropos. They were then left with the task of getting the boat from Fiji back to Seattle. This presentation shows the difficult, uphill return trip that was made with the help of nine crew members who flew in and out of various islands to help with the journey. The return trip began in Fiji where we volunteered with Sea Mercy to deliver relief aid supplies to a remote island that took a direct hit from Cat-5 Cyclone Winston, continues to the beautiful island of Samoa, the very remote island of Kiritimati, then Hawaii and the long passage to Seattle--a total of 8,000 nm in 4 months.

The old mill is gone! Shop in the General Store, hike on nearby trails, tour the lumber museum. Port Gamble is always a good trip, even on a wet weekend!
Of course, there will be shared potluck meals. . .
