Accomplished sailors Bob and Ami Green will share details March 18 about their three-year sail in their talk "If You're Ever in the Amazon ..." at the Mystic Seaport Adventure Series.

Presentations will be given at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Mystic Art Cinema in Olde Mistick Village.

The Greens returned to the sea in 2005 after a three-year hiatus caused by the loss of their yacht Scallywag. Leaving Rhode Island on Scallywag II bound for the Mediterranean and the Middle East, the couple sailed home three years later, making stops in Cape Verde, Senegal and Brazil. They ended their voyage with a thousand-mile cruise down the Amazon River, taking in the region's sights, music, sounds and stories.
