The North France and Channel Islands Seminar, 17th of January
The North France and Channel Island's section' are delighted that Peter Carnegie will be joining us, on the eve of the new and updated edition of his excellent Imray pilot of The Channel Islands, Chebourg Peninsula and adjacent North French coast. He will be sharing his extensive knowledge of this sailing area, with plenty of advice and opportunity to answer member's questions.
We also have a senior instructor from First Class Sailing, going through the options and scenarios for crossing The Channel. This will be invaluable for Skippers and Crew who are anticipating their first crossing, and good review for more experienced Sailors.
We shall also hear from a former Yachtmaster Examiner, who found himself caught out crossing the Channel in bad weather. He shares his experience of being hours at sea and rescued by the RLNI. Most importantly he will cover techniques that saved him and his yacht, and go through kit, that worked and that that didn't. He will also touch on the subject of salvage.
On a lighter note, we will have contributions from members - Cruising logs and stories. All this, along with a good lunch and perhaps a glass of wine or two.
Booking forms will be available at the end of the month via our section page and newsletter, so please respond asap in order to secure a place.
Please note: This date has been changed from the date listed in Cruising magazine.
