Gunkholing from Poole to Scilly and back, Paul Brown


Date: 
Wed, 20/03/2013 - 19:00 to 21:30
Place: 
CA House

In Summer 2011 Paul and family spent a couple of weeks cruising the West Country in their Ovni yacht "Little Wing". Determined to make the most of the lift keel and shallow draft, they spent much time gunkholing as far as they could go up each harbour and river, getting to places inaccessible to most 40ft yachts. In Summer 2012 they returned, this time on passage to the Isles of Scilly.

Once again, the design of the Ovni proved ideal for exploring these amazing islands, letting them safely navigate the tricky routes, shallow depths and frequent rocks.

Black Sea Cruising, by Chris Smith

Wed, 06/03/2013 - 19:00 to 21:30
Place: 
CA House

Starting from Lesbos, a five month journey through the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus to Bulgaria,  Romania, Ukraine, North Turkey and to Georgia. Highlights were gentility in the Sea of Marmara, crazy officialdom in Istanbul, three transits of the swirling Bosphorus (twice single-handed) and the emptiness of the Black Sea (enlivened by the coastguard boats coming to check papers). Less entrancing was paperwork in Yalta and thunderstorms in N Turkey.  The land of the Golden Fleece?
