We are delighted to be able to announce that Ian Strathcarron has agreed to hold an illustrated talk about the life of Sir Francis Chichester. Lord Strathcarron is the author of several travel biographies and has just published "Never Fear - Reliving the Life of Sir Francis Chichester". It should prove to be a fascinating talk about a man who inspired many of us to take up sailing - including myself!
The book is now on our shelves and perhaps the first thing that you will notice is that, just like a decent piece of hardware, it weighs a bit more than you expect! It is definately a very well produced hardback packed with interesting illustrations. I've just started reading it and thoroughly enjoying it.
If you would like to attend please email; email@example.com to reserve your place. Entrance is £5.00 but fully refunded if you buy the book or anything to the value of £15.00 or over.
Feel free to buy the book in advance and bring your receipt for free entry!
