    • 26 Nov 2019
    • 20:30 - 23:00
    • Papercourt
    Talk on Sailing Weather - Gales, Greenhouses & Global Warming
    • Speaker - Ian Currie

    • The talk will look at various changes of climate across the UK back through geological time and explain how they may have happened. There is much evidence to show that we are in a climate change regime at the moment with a trend to warmer conditions. The record breaking rainfall measured in the winter of 2013-14 and the warmest winter for many centuries, that of 2015-16 and the recent very warm, dry summer are also possible signs of climate change. The last three years have been the warmest globally and polar ice and mountain glaciers are decreasing. Has man had an impact on the Weather? This latest change of climate may be the first that Man has anything to do with .So what may have caused past ice ages when the Southeast  was as cold as the Arctic or experienced tropical rain forest conditions more like the Amazon? I will look at possible causes.

      What will the impact be for the UK and more locally for Hants, Kent, Surrey and Sussex if this current pattern continues with flooding being one important topic? What will the future hold for coastal communities? I may provide more questions than answers but it will be an informative occasion illustrated with plenty of slides and I will bring a display of pictures too and even some humour.

    Talk on Charting the Uncharted in the UK's Yachting Paradise
    • Speaker - Bob Bradfield, Antares

    • ANTARES CHARTS is a source of 'unofficial' very large scale electronic charts and related pilotage information created by yachtsmen for yachtsmen.

      Focusing on the West Coast of Scotland it is aimed at experienced navigators, to supplement information available from more authoritative providers.

      The UK’s official surveying and charting authorities have not resurveyed many of the more interesting channels and anchorages of the West of Scotland since the advent of satellite positioning and often do not publish charts to a sufficiently large scale to meet the needs of the more adventurous yachtsman.
