Potluck Party Packs

"Stacy McCampbell introduced me to a “potluck pack” when we first met in the Aves Islands, just off the coast of Venezuela. We sailed in to anchor next to a little island where thousands of booby birds nested in mangroves and spectacular reefs surrounded our boats. Our friends Kathy and Jack Grafius, on s/v Dream, were with us, and they knew Stacy and her husband, Dave McCampbell, from the s/v Soggy Paws, the only other boat in the anchorage. Anchors secured, the guys went off hunting and gathering and returned before noon with a great haul of conchs. Kathy invited everyone over to Dream for fresh fried conch. “Bring a dish to share,” she said, five little words that precede many an evening of joy."
