- ConsultingThis is a love story. Andy had to sail around Cape Horn to find me. We both didn’t know it, of course, but I had been waiting for him. My name is Pam Wall. I have been married to Andy Wall for 28 years. We have sailed the seven seas together. Our story should interest anyone who has dreamed of sailing their own boat with their family. This love story will go on and on. I would like to share it; to inspire others to follow their dreams. Andy was born in Sydney, Australia. His parents knew he was meant for the sea. They helped him build his own thirty foot wooden sloop. And when he was just eighteen, he sailed from home. I knew he was looking for me, I just didn’t know who he was. It was many miles and many wonderful experiences that finally brought Andy to round Cape Horn. Young and full of adventure, Andy sailed his sloop, “Carronade”, straight from Tahiti to the Cape.

- BioPam was brought up in a sailing family. Her young years were spent sailing on Lake Michigan with her Father. It was this up bringing on the water that gave Pam the desire to find an adventurous husband who would sail her around the world. Besides the studying at the University of Wisconsin, Pam was the president of the Hoofer’s Sailing Club for two years. Her years in college also gave her more opportunity for inland lake sailing on Lake Mendota. After four years in the snow of Wisconsin, Pam made a move to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where she “could sail year round” and live with palm trees! It was this move that gave Pam her opportunity to become part of the large and growing Marine Industry of Florida. Andy Wall, a young handsome sailor from Australia sailed into her life. Andy had built his own 30 foot sloop and had sailed it across the Pacific Ocean. He departed his home in Sydney, Australia and sailed his little sloop, CARRONADE, to the United States.
