The Impossible Voyage; 81 Degrees North and Beyond
a presentation by Roger Taylor on Sunday 24th February, 12:00 noon
In 2018 Roger Taylor, in his largely self-built Achilles 24 Mingming II, achieved a long-held ambition to sail around the very top of Svalbard and east into the little-known Queen Victoria Sea to the north-west of the islands of Franz Josef Land. Roger will tell us about his 4000 mile, 56 day nonstop voyage into literally uncharted waters in which few people have ever sailed.
Many of us will have heard Roger speak at previous Cruiser Fleet Lunches and will have read his books. Roger is one of the great characters of the ocean sailing scene and it is our privilege to welcome him to speak at the last of our Cruiser Fleet Lunch events of the current close season.
The presentation will begin at 12:00 prompt and be followed at 13:00 by a carvery lunch (two courses, £13.50 pp). Dress code is smart casual and the event is open to all members and their guests. Please book your places by contacting the club office.
