Bodacious Dream Around the World Voyage

Consider taking a ride to Milwaukee Sept. 4 to hear the well-known Indiana native Dave Rearick talk about his around-the-world voyage on the Farr FC 40 Bodacious Dream. As some of you know, our own ex-commodore John Hoskins assisted Dave as a weather router during certain legs of the circumnavigation. John also sailed with Dave on a string of Bodacious boats, the last being the Santa Cruz 52 called Bodacious IV, on which they sailed to Hawaii in a crewed Transpac, finishing 3rd in 2013.  

Event at the Boswell Book Company, 2559 N. Downer Ave, Milwaukee, 7pm, Sept. 4.  Click here for more information.

 

michigan wave (1)

We found this on Sailing Anarchy.  Click on the photo to enlarge.  This is a picture taken of a wave crashing against the north pier at St. Joseph, MI last Wednesday, March 8 near sunset.  For the fact junkies out there, the wind blew 40 knots, gusting 60 from the west with a fetch of only 51nm.  The brown in the wave is sand pulled up from a depth of 20 feet.  The lighthouse seen is 57 feet high with a rear range light at 53 feet. The 36 foot tall front range and light at the end of the pier can not be seen.   Lake Michigan ain’t a place for wimpy sailors!
