Sausalito People Series: Marc and Doreen Gounard, Circumnavigators

In 1994, Marc and Doreen Gounard finished building Imani, a Simpson 10.2-meter catamaran, and brought her to Sausalito's Galilee Harbor. 

In 1996 Marc and Doreen stepped the mast, completed the rigging and took the family – two kids three and nine years old – to Mexico and back for Imani's maiden voyage. 

In the winters of 1997 and 1998, the family sailed to and from Mexico to prepare for the next challenge: a four-and-a-half year, thirty-eight country, west-about circumnavigation, traversing both Suez and Panama Canals. 

Marc and Doreen will share stories from their voyage and lessons learned homeschooling the children and navigating through difficult political waters. The Gounard family and Imani have been back in Galilee Harbor since 2004.
