Even if you’re not a CA member, you’re welcome to attend the fascinating evening “Winter Warmer” talks organised by the Kent Section of the Cruising Association.
On 8 October it’s “Girl’s Guide to the Southern Ocean” with Linda Crew-Gee, who recently completed one of the toughest sea passages on Earth. Linda will tell you the story what it was like to sail on an old ship, to be at sea for 30 days in tough conditions, with no communications… what she learned about our planet, the sea and the life. Across the Southern Ocean and via Cape Horn on “Tecla”, a 100-year-old Dutch gaff ketch, this is as traditional as it can get.
The talks are at 8pm at the Dog & Bear, Lenham, ME17 2PG. We recommend going earlier to enjoy the great food. Call 01622 858219 to book a meal.
