Sailing to Jan Mayen Island and Climbing Beerenberg
  • Speaker: Alasdair Flint

  • Alasdair Flint is a keen sailor who has owned his 26 foot wooden yacht for over thirty years. During that time, he has crossed the Atlantic single-handed and voyaged as far north as Spitsbergen. In 2022 he tried to reach Scoresby Sund, East Greenland but was thwarted by bad weather conditions.

    Alasdair will talk about his 2011 expedition when he sailed his small wooden yacht to the remote Arctic Island of Jan Mayen and climbed the world’s most northerly volcano – Beerenberg.

  • This talk will be in the clubhouse, and we encourage members to attend the clubhouse and catch up with friends there. It will also be on Zoom. 

  • 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
