Tuesday 20th November Keith Beddard - A Cruise to Scotland

Posted by Bob on Wednesday, December 5, 2012, In : Previous Meetings 
What a fantastic night! With another packed out club room we heard how Keith and his wife Barbara spent last summer cruising the NW coast of Scotland via the Isle of Man. They re-visited many of their favourite places: mainly seen before from the mountain tracks. Keith showed us some fabulous photos of the mountains that they had walked in earlier years but this time taken from the water aboard their Moody.  He showed us some wonderful secure anchorages amongst the Islands - a delightful part...

Another full house! Paul Wooddisse gave us a very interesting insight into one of the UK's more remote yet delightful cruising grounds off the NW coast of Scotland. He told how all the Islanders had to leave the Island in the 1930's. St. Kilda is now only inhabited by the birds - and lots of them. A delightful place to visit in the right weather. Paul is planning to revisit them this year and has a couple of places left on his boat so if you are interested  - contact him here L'Ecume Des Mers...

Dick Bennett - a trip to Iceland 20th January 2009

Posted by Beryl on Thursday, January 22, 2009, In : Previous Meetings 
On January 20th we accompanied Dick Bennett on a trip to Iceland on his lovely boat, a
freedom rigged 35ft ketch "Serrann".  The slides and his excellent commentary were a
joy.  However, the tale became very exciting on the return journey . A very heavy storm
hit them mid-way from Iceland to Scotland and there was no escape.  The boat weathered

recollection was being in the raging sea some yards away from ...
