RHYC/CA Winter Talks
We arrange a variety of talks throughout the Winter months:
Sat 20th January - Two's Company - Martin & Elizabeth Bevan
(Bar Opens 1800, Supper 1845, Talk 2000)
Martin and Elizabeth Bevan spent 7 years from leaving the club in July 2010 on a 50,000 mile, 42 country, double handed circumnavigation. The final major leg starting in January 2017 was the somewhat unusual route from Cape Town via St Helena, Ascension Island, the Azores to Gibraltar. They will illustrate some of the highlights from this trip and in addition cover boat preparation and equipment, provisioning and maintenance in exotic places, navigation off the beaten track, aid work in Vanuatu and how they coped with long passages.
Thurs 25th January - The Antarctic, Pioneers of Sailing in the Southern Ocean - Paul Rodhouse
(Coffee/Cake 1100, Talk 1130, Lunch 1300)
