Tuesday Evening Talk - Atlantic BC by Phillip Beale

  • 11/10/2022
  • 19:00 - 21:00
  • Main Club Room, Blackwater Sailing Club

Philip Beale presents Atlantic BC, an epic recreation of a Phoenician Voyage 2,000 years before Columbus.  

This illustrated lecture will challenge everything you thought you knew about Columbus and the discovery of the New World. It covers what the ancient scholars knew of the Atlantic, what Columbus borrowed from the ancients and how such voyages were almost certainly undertaken, as illustrated by the Phoenicians Before Columbus Expedition.

In 2019 Philip Beale set out to prove that the ancient Phoenicians could have crossed the Atlantic 2,000 years before Christopher Columbus. As captain and expedition leader of the Phoenicians Before Columbus Expedition, Philip Beale tells the exciting story of arguably the most ambitious voyage in experimental archaeology since Kon-Tiki.

The Osea room bar opens at 19:00 and the talk starts in the main upper deck club room room at 19:30

No need to book, just turn up. Non members from other sailing clubs welcome.
