Speaker: Nancy Erley

One World, Twice Around

Nancy Erley led two 5-year voyages from Seattle around the world on her Orca 38’ sailboat Tethys. “As the skipper of an all-woman crew, Nancy fashioned a circumnavigation that should go down in the record books as one of the soundest, most seamanlike journeys in the modern cruising era. Like all competent voyages, Tethys circumnavigation was notable for its lack of disasters.” George Day, publisher Blue Water Sailing magazine.” 65 women participated in the adventure as learning crew.

As a young Girl Scout in Ohio, Nancy’s troop was accepted to the Joseph Conrad Youth Mariner program at Mystic Seaport Museum and the next year the Schooner Brilliant. Nancy was 16 when she found the sea calling her.

In 2006 Nancy was presented with the Leadership in Women’s Sailing Award sponsored by BoatUS and the National Women’s Sailing Association. The award honors a male or female who has built a record of achievement in inspiring, educating and enriching the lives of women through sailing.

Nancy holds her USCG 100-ton Master of Ocean license and is an Instructor Evaluator-Ocean Master for the International Sail and Power Association.
