Lia Ditton's World Record Attempt

First woman to row from Japan to San Francisco

In early 2018, Lia Ditton will depart from Tokyo to row 5,500 miles solo across the North Pacific to San Francisco. 18 people have attempted this route. Only two were successful. Both were men.

Lia will speak about her training regimen, past racing experiences, why she is taking on this challenge and how she is preparing to break this record. “Everyone who sees Lia raves about her presentation”.

Lia Ditton is an artist and a professional sailor passionate about sharing her extraordinary experiences at sea. Now 36, Lia has over 150,000 nautical miles of experience, eaten two years’ worth of freeze-dried food, gone a month without a shower and raced a sailboat over 40 knots!

Emergency Celestial Navigation with Bob Darr

What would you do if your GPS went down or stopped working? Could you find your way safely to port?

Bob Darr of the Arques School will teach a basic celestial navigation course giving you the ability to use a sextant and tables to follow latitude to the nearest port.

As a child, Bob Darr sailed on schooners through the South Pacific with his father, Captain Omer Darr, who taught Bob to rely on celestial navigation at 15 years old.

This workshop is intended to give a practical overview and understanding of celestial navigation as a foundation to more advanced and complete courses that participants will be invited to attend.

We are requesting a $50 donation for this Workshop. There will be a coffee bar and lunch included with your donation.
