Wednesday Evening Talks from previous years

Mike McNamara talk- A Review

A very warm thanks was given to Mike at the end of last nights superb talk by the fifty or so clubmembers and visitors alike who attended.

Mike provided an outstandingly enjoyable evening and gave us all a very detailed and sightful look at how our sails and rigs should be working. Both funny and intuitive, he entertained us throughout the evening and has left, judging by the responsess heard so far, everybody dwelling on the thoughts of how, not only set theirs sails and rigs better, but also to make more effective tactical judgements.

It should be very interesting to see how this affects (and hopefully improves) our sailing in the future.

After such a succesful evening we are now eagerly awaiting the next talk by Steve Cockerill on the 7th April. The booking form is now available and with the success of this talk I am sure that we will once again not be dissappionted by Steve's insights into sailing!
