Organiser: Dick Beddoe
North West Passage - Nigel Barraclough
The North West Passage – who found it and who didn’t.
The North West passage in the Artic north of Canada: a fabled alternative route to the east has been the subject of controversy, claims that were unfounded but more importantly the true “discoverer” was vilified and never given the credit by the Establishment – arguably still doesn’t.
Nigel Barraclough will talk about the history and one of the (conveniently) forgotten heroes of Artic exploration.
(Free entry - A collection will be held at the end of the talk to support the club and clubs nominated charity).
Description: The Commodore goes to the bottom of the World.- Alick Fraser
A trip to the tip of South America - Fin del Mondo - and beyond
Pencil in this date in your diary for a presentation about some of the remotest parts of the world. More detail to follow, but be assured this presentation is definitely not to be missed.
Singapore Sling goes to the Baltic Swedish archipelago, the Gota Canal, and the Danish archipelago.
Continuing on from last year we look at the challenges of sailing amongst 2000 islands and 20,000 rocks, from Fehmarn in Germany to Sandhamn (near Stockholm) in Sweden. We look at the merits of chart plotters versus charts. Navigate through the Gota canal with 58 locks to go up 91.8 m (and down again) plus 70 mile lakes, and finally check out a trip down the west coast of Sweden from Gothenburg, onto Copenhagen and finally back to Fehmarn in Germany.
Dick Beddoe and various crew completed the trip in the summer of 2018 and will inspire you to visit this stunningly beautiful part of the world.
