Seminar Topic: FROM TRAWLERFEST TO TIMBUKTU: PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR THE WOULD-BE ADVENTURERS
Presented by: Scott & Mary Flanders
For circumnavigators Scott and Mary Flanders, TrawlerFest-Stuart marked an epiphany a decade ago. It not only led this adventurous couple to Nordhavn but prompted them to begin the process of early retirement and their eventual escape. Now they are speaking at TrawlerFest-Baltimore in September to share the lessons they’ve learned and inspire the next generation. Expect to see some wonderful photography as well and take a tour of Egret, the boat that made it all possible.Bio: After delivery of Nordhavn 46 Egret in August, 2001, the Flanders spent 2½ years coastal cruising the east coast of North America, crossed the Atlantic and spent 2½ years in the Mediterranean. Departing the Mediterranean to the Canary Islands, Egret embarked on a 4½ year circumnavigation passing below the five Great Southern Ocean Capes beginning with Cape Horn, the first five-cape circumnavigation ever for a small powerboat.Since returning to the Canary Islands, Egret returned to the Mediterranean then re-crossed the Atlantic to North America and more recently Egret wintered in Isafjordur, Iceland and returned this year via Greenland, Labrador, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and currently enroute to Baltimore.

Seminar Topic: NORTHWEST PASSAGE: ADVENTURE, ORDEAL, OR BOTH?
Presented by: Sprague Theobald
The limited release documentary “The Other Side of the Ice” took our editors by surprise, and chronicles Sprague Theobald’s historic Northwest Passage on a Nordhavn 57. Sprague’s film digs deep into the enduring human spirit, the heartache of defeat, the joy of family, and the lifeline binds of offshore passagemaking. It’s no wonder why “The Other Side of the Ice” was the recipient of Sprague’s second Emmy.Sprague’s writing and commentary have been published in The New York Times as well as many major national and international yachting magazines. Sprague spent several seasons as a staff writer for two of the Showtime Network’s episodic shows and worked as a successful screenwriter in Los Angeles, and a broadcast journalist/producer for eight years at an NBC affiliate. The Other Side of The Ice is Sprague’s second book; The Reach is his first. Sprague’s boating résumé includes twelve-meter racing in the America’s Cup arena, several transatlantic races, one of which was the Two Man Transatlantic Race, a complete circumnavigation of North America, and over 40,000 offshore miles. He lives and works out of Manhattan, New York.
