Some By-ways off a Circumnavigation, by Henry and Kikki Capleton

Starting out as novices Henry and Kikki sailed the 'coconut milk run' through the Caribbean, Pacific, Australasia, SE Asia and in 2011 made it through 'pirate alley' and the Red Sea to Turkey. Sailing is the means, visiting interesting places is the end. Initially this talk will describe places and their people off the normal cruising route, some accessible only by boat, including: Palmerston Atoll, Tasmania, Vanuatu, North Borneo and the Andaman Islands. After the break the focus will be on recent experience with the Vasco de Gama rally crossing the Indian Ocean and up the Red Sea which sparked an enthusiasm for the Red Sea as a cruising option for Med based boats.
