Come along and listen to Julian Berney recount tales from his voyages to the Canary islands in his yacht 'Houdalinqua'
Julian has sailed to the Canary Islands three times in search of winter sunshine and spent the last three years cruising around the islands. He will talk about getting there - turn right at Bradwell, down the Channel, across the Bay of Biscay keeping France, Spain, Portugal and Africa to port (on your left). Using the prevailing winds and currents, you can’t miss it! If you get to the Cape Verde or Brazil, then you have gone too far!
He will then talk about cruising the different islands. "The islands are different and the sailing, especially between them, can be quite demanding and require some careful passage planning. However there are marvellous landscapes to visit that stretch from sand dunes to volcanoes and from forests to high cloud covered barren mountains."
The bar opens at 19:00 and the talk starts at 19:30
