Steve Callahan, sailor best-selling author of Adrift, will be speaking at the Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Seminar & Expo Feb 6-8, 2009. For those who are unfamiliar, his boat sank early into a trans-Atlantic race
. Adrift is his account of how he survived 76 days in a life raft. It's a great read for both sailors and land-lubbers. I won't tell you how it ends.
The Blue Wild Expo will be in Dania Beach, FL at the International Game Fish
Assoc. Museum Feb. 6, 7, & 8th (a week before the Miami
Boat Show). For more info about this Expo, other speakers, and how to register, please see The Blue Wild Spearfishing Seminar and Expo
includes t-shirt, lunch (both days), and entry to guest speakers, exhibitors, raffles, auctions, and FUN! At a minimum, come to the Friday night kick-off party (NO ENTRY FEE!) -- Steve will be signing and selling his book there. Be sure to check out the fantastic raffle items. Proceeds from the Expo benefit the Boca Raton Society for the Disabled.
Also, I am new to this forum and love it (to the point of being bleary-eyed at 2AM)! I didn't want fellow-sailors to miss the chance of hearing and meeting Steve, so I thought I'd post this (with moderator's permission). So, if you attend, please by sure to stop by and introduce yourself to me (I'm one of the hostesses for the event, picture is at bottom of expo web site). Hope to see you there!
