IVAR’S Salmon House, 401 NE Northlake Way, Seattle
5:30pm – Meet and Greet
6:45pm – Dinner in the Banquet Room
Topic: “Bareboating in French Polynesia”
Speakers: Roger and Julie Newby
Dinner Menu Update:
The staff at Ivar’s Salmon House has agreed to provide one or two NEW menu choices. Since the Pasta dish has been the lease favorite, I expect to at least substitute one new choice there. As of the Rudderpost deadline, I have not heard from them, but look for an update in the EVITE this week. REMEMBER: Please use the Comments box in your RSVP to advise how many of which dinner menu choice you would like.
This month’s speakers will be my wife, Julie, and I. We enjoyed a wonderful bareboat charter sailing trip this last Spring in French Polynesia. Our total party of 17 people took 2 Sunsail 44 catamarans for 10 days, visiting Raiatea, Tahaa, and Bora Bora. We spent 5 days on other islands prior to the sailing, and another 5 days after the 10-day boating segment. What a vacation! The weather was outstanding, the island people very gracious, and the snorkeling/diving was out of this world! Sharks, manta rays, eels, and countless species of colorful tropical fish were everywhere.
We’ll show you our slides, a few videos, and relay some good stories about our adventure in French Polynesia. The biggest finding here is just how doable this trip is for any of us. We can’t wait to go again!
