Helma Hermans completed the second run of her very excellent, 2-part presentation on Saturday 9th June in the Belliure Room at the Real Club Náutico Calpe. The well-attended and interesting event covered Helma and Bob’s two and a half year cruise around the Atlantic in S/Y Sunny Spray, the yacht that they built themselves.

She previously gave the presentation in Jávea, on 29th January and  26th March 2018, and agreed to represent her talk on Saturday 26th May and Saturday 9th June in Calpe for those that missed it in Jávea.

The first talk addressed their route from Oliva, Spain, through the Strait of Gibraltar, visiting the Bay of Cadiz and the Guadalquivir; all but one of the Canary Islands. Then down south to Dakar, and further south to the Sine Saloum (a delta just north of Gambia), then crossing the Atlantic from the Saloum to French Guyana.

In Part 2, Helma described their experiences in visiting the Central American coast, the Caribbean, the Windward Islands, and then recrossing the Atlantic to sail back home to Spain, Dénia.

If you were unable to attend, you missed a really interesting event!
