February 19 Meeting: Sextant to AIS, two voyages, two boats, bridging two cruising styles

Tony Gibb and Connie McCann of Victoria, BC, circumnavigated the Pacific Ocean via the Aleutian Islands from 1983-1990 in a home built Vancouver 27, Hejira of Victoria, with a sextant, one battery, no refrigeration and no head. They departed again in 2010 in Sage, a Wauquiez 38, with a sextant, numerous GPS’, a Lavac head, refrigeration and no AIS.

The British sailor Pete Goss said Tony and Connie had bridged two different cruising worlds. The world of the Hiscock’s and sextants and the Delos social media world and AIS.
