“ICW (Part 2): Destinations, Anchorages and Problem Areas” discusses the best destinations of the ICW, marinas and anchorages, and the various problem areas known for shoaling, high current or other challenges to safe passage. This one hour seminar will give you locations specific data which only someone as experienced on the ICW as Wally is would have at hand. This seminar, and ICW Part 1 are for the cruiser planning on leaving in the next year to two years. A Q&A session will follow.
Wally will have just completed his 28th ICW passage prior to his arrival at the Toronto International Boat Show, after having led some 23 boats south in the Sail to the Sun ICW Rally, his third rally format trip south on the ICW. Following the show, he will again sail to the Bahamas and through to Cuba's south coast.
When he's not sailing, he writes for various sailing and boating publications, including Cruising World, who published his feature article on the Bahamas in their September 2016 edition, and has produced several videos for The Sailing Channel.
Wally particularly enjoys answering the questions of new cruisers at his seminars. Those heading south in the fall of 2017 will be especially interested in learning more about the ICW regatta going south to Miami that he will be leading for the fourth time.
Wally blogs his cruising adventures at http://bloggingtheICW.blogspot.com and also has a highly enjoyable Facebook group,https://www.facebook.com/groups/SailorsandCruisers/ if you'd like to join him online.
