All Gabriola Island Squadron and Sylva Bay Yacht Club members check here about the "Cape parties" that are planned to celebrate Bert's passing past each of the 5 capes:Party Time!

Bert terHart, the Squadron’s former Educational Officer, embarked on a solo voyage to circumnavigate the globe via all five capes October 27 at 1134. He is using only celestial navigation (no electronics) and is collecting data for science purposes as he sails. We will all miss his positive personality here, but look forward to his safe return about seven months after his departure.
Bert sends daily updates via satellite to his wife, Nani who forwards them to Don Butt for posting on his blog entitled “Bert terHart’s Epic Journey”.
