Baltic talk

  I was pleased to be asked to give a talk about Aurora’s Baltic travels, to the Cruising Association at their headquarters in Limehouse basin in London’s East End. Enthusiastically assisted by Alice, the talk to an audience of forty or so was very well received. 

I described the modifications I have made to Aurora, the preparations for our cruise, the island groups we visited and the contrast between Baltic cruising and sailing in home waters.

Thank you to all those who came (including Mum and dad!)

I’ve been asked to give this talk again, closer to home this time. This one will be for the West Midlands section of the Cruising Association on the evening of Nov 17th at Ashwood Marina Social Club, Kingswinford DY6 0AQ. All welcome.

Aurora’s in print again

The journeys in this blog have made it into print again, this time with a feature in Britain’s best selling Sailing magazine. The article in the November edition of Practical Boat Owner covers our month-long cruise around part of the Stockholm archipelago in the Baltic during the summer of 2014. With the Autumn leaves falling, the nights drawing in and the temperatures falling, it’s lovely to look back over wonderful summer memories. 

I’m giving a talk to the Cruising Association next Friday. If you’re in London next weekend, you’d be welcome to come along.
