“Heavy Weather Sailing” a talk by Alan Wilson

Published by under Club Notices

Alan Wilson is a cruising yachtsman from Tollesbury, who has given us various sailing talks over the past few years and this year we have asked him to give us his talk on “Heavy Weather Sailing”. We have also asked Alan to combine sections of his talk on man overboard “Where’s He Gone”. This should be an interesting and thought provoking evening.

Tuesday 28th February 2017 @ 8pm for 8.30pm start

All members and friends welcome
