The society will have its first quarterly meeting for 2019 on Wednesday 13 February at the Anzac room in the RSL, cnr Thompson Ave and Cowes-Rhyll rd starting at 12 midday. Cost for two course meal, tea and coffe plus raffle ticket is $20. Drinks at bar prices. Speaker will be member Judy Lawrence, telling us about her year of crewing a yacht in an around the world yacht race. Judy briefly describes the experience as:
"There were 10 identical yachts in the race. We departed from Liverpool and returned to Liverpool. Each yacht had a core crew of 8 people who complete the whole race, and the remaining crew were picked up from different locations around the globe. The boats were 68 foot long. The race took 12 months to complete but training before was a minimum of 2 months.
There were 14 legs to the race with the average legs being 3 to 4 weeks depending on your speed and wind." This certainly should be a most interesting talk!
A short general meeting will follow lunch and be followed by guest speaker. All welcome but booking is essential. Payment on the day, but to book please contact the treasurer, Judy Gittus, on 0417 390 885 or email email@example.com
