It started with a home-made boat. A 40ft trimaran christened Macha. Carolyn Heath and Tony Spooner began an adventure in June of 2012. Carolyn Heath is an Earth Sciences Professor at Fullerton College. The intrepid crew voyaged to ports of call that included Mexico, Costa Rica, & Central America. They then chose a hard "left" from Panama to the Galapagos Islands. The adventure recommenced with their biggest crossing yet, 3000 miles, to the Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia. They will be continuing on later this year to Tonga, Fiji and beyond., hoping to get as far as the Indian Ocean in the next couple of years! Join us for this fascinating evening.
