On August 20th, 2003, Pakistan’s preeminent pro-democracy and anti-nuclear advocates, Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy and Dr. Zia Mian will examine the success and failure of US foreign policy in achieving its avowed goals.

An overnight voyage to Angel Island’s Ayala Cove tested skills that a group of youth from the Berkeley Boosters acquired through a series of summer sails aboard Pegasus. All of the sailors had been aboard Pegasus for preparatory day sails to learn skills such as knot tying, raising and lowering sails, steering and navigation. Under the guidance of Pegasus volunteer crew Paul Kassatkin, Jim Gaebe, and Nancy Navarro, the youth enjoyed an exciting sail to Ayala Cove where they cooked, cleaned, ate and slept aboard the moored vessel.
