    In these uncertain times Tom Cunliffe once again has agreed to present to the Channel Sailing Club :- Its all looking good for the 18th November.  Remember, all current bookings will be honoured.  We now are NOT restricted on numbers so invite your friends and relatives.  (Non members a modest £10 a tickets)

    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.

    Remember for club members this is a free event! But you must register for a ticket

    All guests £10 a ticket
