Guildford Coastal Cruising Clu

Dinghy Cruising - Roger Barnes

  • 06 Dec 2022
  • 20:00 - 22:00
  • Papercourt & Zoom
Dinghy Cruising
  • Speaker: Roger Barnes - President - Dinghy Cruising Association
  • Roger is well known for his dinghy cruising exploits, and he will enlighten us about how to go about it.  This takes downsizing to the limit - but if the old maxim of 'the smaller the cruiser, the more sailing you will do' is true, then perhaps it is the way ahead for some!

  • ‘‘British people are lucky enough to live on an island surrounded by a primeval wilderness: untamed, ever-changing and awesome in its power and beauty. Where it confronts our land, the vast desert of the sea becomes a place of shoals and shallows, estuaries and creeks, intensely varied and utterly fascinating. Roger argues that the best way to explore our coastline is in a small and light camping dinghy, that can creep deep into the shallows and find places of calm and solitude away from the crowds, away from the stresses of modern life. This is available to anyone with a modest boat and a spirit of adventure."

  • Roger will speak to us from France via Zoom, which will be projected in the clubhouse and also accessible on Zoom.  We encourage members to attend the clubhouse and catch up with friends there.  

  • The Zoom link will be sent by separate email to club members nearer the time; for non members who wish to participate via Zoom, please contact the membership secretary, who will send you the link.

  • Organiser: David Cockburn
