First Winter talk

Thursday, February 2, 2017 @ 7:30 pm

John Spencely will be kicking things off on Thursday 2nd February at 7.30pm, by reading some of his favourite sailing readings:

1) “Fastnet 1979” by John Maclean, the skipper of Fluter, a Contessa 32. Utterly gripping! 8 pages.
2) “The Recovery of the Dubai Valour” by Douglas J Lindsay. Skullduggery up the creek in Nigeria. 11 pages.
3) The sail reefing episode from “We didn’t mean to go to sea” by Arthur Ransome. 10 pages.

He has asked that members might like to bring along interesting short extracts that inspired their own sailing, to share with the audience?
