In July of 2011, Jim Heumann and Karen Sullivan set out from Port Townsend in their Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 “Sockdolager,” bound for California, Mexico, and the the South Pacific. They arrived in New Zealand in November 2012. After six months in New Zealand, they put their boat (and themselves) on a container ship to San Francisco. From there they sailed home to Port Townsend, arriving August 2013. In this talk they will tell you about some of the things they learned about themselves, cruising, their boat, the people they met, and the places they visited.


Karen Sullivan & Jim Heumann

When Jim Heumann and Karen Sullivan first met in 2007 they both had Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 sailboats.  Since then they have downsized to just one and have cruised around 14,000 miles together.  Karen has been sailing for most of her adult life, Jim took up the sport in 2005.
