In these uncertain times Tom Cunliffe once again has agreed to present to the Channel Sailing Club :-
‘Ice with Everything – to America with the Norsemen’
In the early 1980s Tom set off in his 1911 sailing pilot cutter with his wife Roz, their four-year-old daughter and a crew of unlikely characters to voyage from Norway to Newfoundland in the wake of Erik the Red and his 10th-century desperadoes.
He succeeded but was beaten back by ice from Greenland. It was to be many years before another chance at Greenland came his way on a boat bought by a mate for £14,000 off eBay.
In this highly illustrated talk he weaves the modern day and ancient expeditions into a rollicking tale you really won’t want to miss.
