It’s not every woman who can say she had her honeymoon aboard a tiny thirty foot sloop crossing the Atlantic from Fort Lauderdale to England! After a lifetime of sailing around the world with her family, Pam now goes around the country giving lectures at boat shows, schools, yacht clubs, and other organizations. She talks about sailing, about responsibility, about empowerment, and the necessity of having dreams to work towards. Pam Wall has become a byword in the sailing community for smiles, laughter, and the joy of passing on information and encouragement to so many people.
Happiest on the water in a sailboat, after a career in the tech industry and post 'retirement', Justin decided to finally immerse himself in everything sailing. So he sought out Pam Wall to find the kind of knowledge that only a circumnavigator can provide. Together, Pam and Justin have culled the best resources available on the Internet today into a system that hopefully can be a great help to all sailors, at all levels, everywhere.
