Blackwater Sailing Club are pleased to continue to host the Cruising Association Essex Saturday evening winter talks. Supper is at 7pm and the talk begins at 8pm.
Everyone is welcome. CA & BSC members pay £15 for the talk and two course meal or £3 for the talk only. Guests pay £17 for the talk and meal or £5 for the talk only.
Tonight's talk is 'TS Royalist and the Sea Cadets'
TS Royalist is the Sea Cadets new flagship, a training brig (two square-rigged masts) that takes twenty-four cadets to sea for six day voyages. The vessel was designed by Acubens, built during 2014 / 2015 at the Spanish shipyard of Astilleros Gondan. Colin Watkins is her skipper. Last year he brought her in to Brightlingsea and she only just fit! Colin will tell us about what it's like to skipper a brand new tall ship and about the Sea Cadets and the other vessels they also operate. Note we had originally planned this talk for the 2017/2018 season and we are pleased to be able to finally get Colin along.
