CA Winter Warmer Talks, 8 Feb 2018

Caroline Milmo will give a short presentation on the CA Crewing Service and tell us about her trip from Lymington to Svalbard in the Norwegian archipelago. This will give you a flavor of how YOU can make use of the service. The CA’s Crewing Service puts skippers and crew in touch.

Clifford Mickleburgh will talk about his trip around the Frisian Islands in Dawn Owl. The Frisian Islands are a chain of islands in the North Sea off the Dutch coast, along the edge of the Wadden Sea. They continue further east as the German East Frisian Islands. If you have sailed the East Coast you will be fascinated by the Frisian Islands and the Wadden Sea.

The Cruising Association Kent Section Winter Warmers are held at 8pm on the 2nd Thursday of each month at The Dog & Bear Hotel, The Square, Lenham, ME17 2PG, which is 8 miles east of Maidstone, just off the A20 in the village square. All are welcome. There is a small charge of £3. Many eat beforehand and it helps speed up service if you telephone the pub on 01622 858219 and order your meal before 5pm.

The next CA Winter Warmer will be as follows:

  • 8 March 2018: Jeremy Batch on 110 Years of Cruising

  1. A trip along the Frisian islands…. very interesting! My Frisian blood sings! I am Marian van der Veen by the way, a Dutch born now living in Devon UK. Cliff Meckleburgh and I met while waiting for the train to Hook of Holland, in Rotterdam Railway Station april 2012. Cliff had his dog with him and I believe there was a friend also traveling with Cliff. We were all on our way to England, by ferry.

    Wish I had joined the crew on Dawn Owl for this trip! There’s still a plan in the back of my head, to attend a trip overseas with Dawn Owl if that’s an option. After enjoying numerous trips by ferry to the UK on holiday each year, the 2012 journey to the UK was my first exploring of a place to live and work, volunteering in 5 communities in the S.West of England and Wales.

    Please, if you wish to stay in touch and still organise trips with Dawn Owl, welcoming company, send me Dawn Owl’s schedule of seafaring through my email address below. Safe journey and very best wishes, Marian.
