January Virtual Squadron Nightt

Join us for an amazing adventure story on January 18th, 2021 at 7:30 PM – “A Family of Five on a Seven-Year Loop Around the Pacific”. Please click here on January 18th to join the free presentation.

We welcome Max Shaw and his family to tell us about their multi-year, multi-thousand-mile voyage all around the Pacific. Starting out as a family of four, and then growing to five, the Shaw’s embarked on a seven-year adventure around the Pacific where they faced dirty diapers at sea, maintenance in exotic locations and uncharted reefs. They sold their house, purged their possessions and set off an adventure of a lifetime that covered over 36,000 nautical miles.

Max and Elizabeth spent most of their adult lives in the Canadian Forces but after 23 years decided they needed a new adventure, and one they could share with their children, so they sold up and went sailing with their two young children. They have spent the last seven years travelling in the Pacific with what is now their family of five. Both Max and Elizabeth started their sailing with the RYA while in the UK. Max is a Sail Canada Advanced Cruising Instructor and Yachtmaster Offshore Instructor and holds a RYA Yachtmaster Ocean/200 GT Master of Yachts certificate.
