Boaters Meeting Wednesday 15th January 2020 – Sam Llewellyn

“Britain and the Sea” by Sam Llewellyn, editor of The Marine Quarterly

A talk, by no means entirely serious and illuminated by cases based on my personal maritime experience, of why we have forgotten we are an island people and what we can do to remind ourselves and others that this is the case. Topics covered include (among many others)  windward sailing, spinnaker repair, sea cookery, boxticking, mysteries of the deep, and why there are monsters in the corners of medieval charts.
