Annual dinner success

Last updated on 09-Dec-15

The annual Christmas dinner held last Saturday night 5th December was a great success with a lovely meal provided by the St Philip's Parish hall caterers, covivial company and an excellent speaker in Russell Kenery who spoke about Matthew Flinders' Open Boat Voyages. Russell, who is a sailor himself, obviously understood his subject and gave us insights into Flinders amazing navigation and leadership skills in several dangerous open water situations. Russell also donated a copy of his monograph on the subject for our reference collection. Photo shows Russell on board the Zephyr,
