Round the Islands, by James Eddison

Having taken delivery of a new swing keel yacht, James and Minh set out to learn what they could do with it, and in the process learned a lot about the wonderful islands we call home.  The Isles of Scilly, Lundy, St Kilda, the Orkneys, Lindisfarne and many more, were explored as they made their circumnavigation all the way round the big island of mainland UK.

Arctic Adventures – A Journey from Ramsgate to Spitsbergen and Back – talk by Des Crampton.  CA House 1900.  Admission free for CA Members.  Non-members £7.

 "Hear how the Ramsgate-based yacht 'Cantilena of London' undertook a 4,500 mile round trip into northern Arctic waters. CA Baltic Section member Des Crampton and his crew sailed to a latitude of 78.5 degrees North amongst the inhospitable but spectacular islands of the Svalbard archipelago. Des was joined by his wife Teresa in the northern Norwegian city of Tromsø for the homeward cruise. Intricate navigation, weird weather and the awesome beauty of the Norwegian coastline all contributed to making this a memorable journey."

A short briefing for the Rally will be included this evening.

Braving it home from Sweden, by Cathy Brown

Wed, 11/03/2015 - 19:00 - 21:30
place: 
CA House

Braving it home from Sweden, by Cathy Brown

When Cathy and Richard Brown ordered the new Brave, an Arcona 410, they decided to deliver her themselves from Arcona’s base near Stockholm to their home port on the River Orwell.

The project proved unexpectedly challenging in a number of ways, from the logistics of getting all the necessary gear to the boat, to the early season weather. They got to know the boat during a brief exploration of the Stockholm Archipelago before setting off on the 1000-mile passage home.

 They had long wanted to cruise in the Baltic, and despite inevitable trials and tribulations, thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

 

 

To book, please contact the CA Office on 0207 537 2828 or email . Tickets are £4 for members and £7 for non-members unless otherwise stated. Season tickets are available at £20 for the spring season. Talks start promptly at 19:00hrs
