Pam Wall found that making the leap to life afloat was one of the best decisions she ever made. Pam will ask the attendees, usually mostly women, to ask her questions and then Pam follow with answers as she knows them. Each question is different, and her answers can be completely diverse as she attempts to show other women that no one has the right or wrong answer.
In this lively and practical seminar, Pam shares her experiences and adventures. You will learn about the joys, challenges and surprises that Pam discovered by sailing away.
The “Women and Cruising Seminar “is different every time Pam presents it – because it all depends on who is in the audience and what questions they want answered. This is a give and take seminar where the audience becomes completely involved.
Pam Wall's honeymoon in 1972 was crossing the Atlantic on a 30 foot timber sloop. Her first ocean passage was happily spent sailing with no radios, no electronic navigation equipment, and a black bucket for a toilet. Once home sailing back across the Atlantic, Pam and her husband, Andy, built their Freya 39 sloop. After sailing their two small children around the world on KANDARIK, Pam worked at West Marine in Fort Lauderdale for 20 years. Pam and Andy sailed their boat across the Atlantic three times after returning home from their circumnavigation.
Pam helps cruisers have the right equipment for their boats, and is a source for information on the cruising lifestyle, routes and sailing information, and helping encourage new cruisers.
