Pam Wall, Cruising Consultant
Chicago was the town where Pam spent her youth sailing with her family and dreaming of a life filled with adventure aboard a boat. She met Andy Wall shortly after he rounded Cape Horn in a 30 foot timber sloop back in 1967. Their honeymoon was sailing across the Atlantic to Europe and return on this tiny wood sloop with no toilet, no engine, no electronics, and not even a radio, and a one burner kerosene stove, and she slept on the cabin sole. And yet she says it was the best time of her life!
Pam and her husband, Andy, later built their own Freya 39 sloop. After taking their two small children around the world for a seven year circumnavigation on their boat KANDARIK, Pam worked at the West Marine store in Fort Lauderdale for 20 years as Cruising Consultant and Outfitting Manager. KANDARIK is still out there sailing on Biscayne Bay with Pam and her son, Jamie.
