    Broadcaster, author and yachtsman Paul Heiney recounts the story of his “quick dash” from the UK to Cape Horn, a voyage of 18,000 miles, from which he has recently returned. Of those miles, nearly 12,000 were singlehanded. He sailed through every climate the Atlantic Ocean has to offer and only when nearly home did things seriously start to go wrong.

    H W (Bill) Tilman disappeared in the South Atlantic at the age of 79 leaving a legacy of some of the finest travel books ever written. The seven ‘Mountain / Travel’ books deal with his early life as the self-effacing military hero who, after a period of farming and exploration in Africa, became one of the enduring legends of high altitude climbing in the Himalayas. Having decided at the age of 53 that he was too old to continue climbing, Tilman took up sailing and for the rest of his life spent many months of each year sailing to high latitudes in a succession of Bristol Pilot  Cutters, documenting the adventures in the eight ‘Sailing / Mountain Exploration’ books.

    While neither of his official biographers have managed to get close to his real character, Bob Comlay is one of the few ‘eccentric’ crew-members who chose to return for a second voyage and this talk will bring to life the real experience of travelling with this remarkable man. The talk is illustrated by a large number of unpublished colour photographs and letters from a friendship that endured until Tilman’s loss at sea in 1978.

    While in the Navy James planned his round-the world voyage and started by selling his 30ft Hillyard and purchasing a Windboats 35ft Fero Hull and then took 5 years to fit it out.  Frances joined him shortly before he was due to set off on a voyage that was to last 15 years. It started conventionally enough to the West Indies, but soon they decided to add Canada and the USA via Bermuda to the itinerary before resuming the passage westwards through the Panama Canal to New Zealand. Once in New Zealand, The Bay of Islands became a base from which to spend several years of cruising the Pacific Islands and Australia.

    The boat as built had several shortcomings and was rebuilt two and a half times over the period and much improved all round. The return voyage took Tara round the top of Australia and on to South Africa, finally completing the circle in the Azores. Careful not to set deadlines, they were cautious with the weather and explored rarely visited spots meeting lots of interesting people on the way.

    A fascinating tale, with lots of twists and turns, but a remarkable voyage and very well sailed. Getting that bit older, Tara was sold and replaced with a fine Dutch-built Motor Boat which they then cruised for several years, but that’s another story…

    Don’t miss this fascinating talk, it will keep you totally riveted from start to finish.

    Sir Chay Blyth is known to many as the first person to sail non-stop, “the wrong way” round the world. This however is only one of his many achievements. Since 1966 when he and John Ridgway rowed across the Atlantic, Chay has been pushing the boundaries again and again in sailing, and in business. He has been awarded the BEM and CBE, and is an inspiration to many.

    After spending his youth messing around in all sorts of boats on the Thames, in 1974 Paul Fisher gained a BSc in Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding from Newcastle University and shortly after became a member of the Royal Institute of Naval Architects. Following his early career as a designer with McGruers and Silvers Marine (later to become DM Russell Ltd.) he moved in 1982 to Devon to start Selway Fisher Design. Paul has over 300 designs to his credit and a well-deserved reputation for producing good boats for modest budgets.

    This is expected to be a fascinating presentation by one of the most well-renowned yacht designers in the UK.

    The Bohuslän coast has 3000 islands and 5000 skerries, giving large areas of sheltered water and superb sailing.  This combines with pretty fishing villages, wonderful scenery and obliging natives who disappear after mid-August, just in time for the best weather.  With cheap flights from London and reasonable charter rates  – it provides an exhilerating alternative to that flotilla’d out Med break.

    Dinner is a choice of:

    • A – Slow roasted shoulder of lamb with roasted potatoes & seasonal vegetables

    Mike Golding is one of the world’s most accomplished and successful offshore sailors with over 250,000 sailing miles and podium successes in many of the world’s toughest and most extreme yacht racing events. A former career fire-fighter, Mike turned to professional sailing following his dominating campaign and overall win in the BT Global Challenge 1996/7. In 2006 Mike made international headlines by giving up his own prospects of winning a major solo around the world race to rescue fellow sailor Alex Thomson whose yacht was sinking deep in the Southern Ocean. Mike was subsequently awarded the Royal Humane Society Medal for bravery.

    Mike plans to cover several topics including Vendee Globe Ocean Racing, his rescue of Alex Thomson, the Open 60 Class of boats and some new projects in the pipeline. This is going to be a very interesting evening!

    Bob Bradfield, a member of the Royal Institute of Navigation for 35 years, made his first chart in Paradise Harbour, Antarctica. Six years ago he founded Antares Charts and has since made almost 300 superb charts covering many of Scotland’s best anchorages. Many of you will have heard our Vice Commodore enthusing about these jewels – combining pinpoint accuracy with exquisite design, each is a work of art. Now incorporated in the Imray/CCC sailing directions, Bob’s charts make some of the world’s most stunning anchorages accessible to mere mortals.
    Describing himself as “an unqualified enthusiast”, Bob will tell us why and how he makes his incredible charts.

    Barrie Neilson was born in Dunedin, New Zealand. He started by racing motor cycles and was then introduced to sailing by a friend. Travelling to Europe in 1974 saw him joining FSC (Flotilla Sailing Club) in 1979 as a flotilla engineer and subsequently worked as flotilla skipper for six years in Greece, Florida and the former Yugoslavia.

    In 1983 Heidi Seville went out on holiday and decided that Barrie needed ‘sorting out’ and she is still struggling to do just that! Between them they decided to try to sort the company itself out. A proposal was put to the owner, Tom Keen, to take over responsibility for the business and this was accepted. In 1987 the name was changed to Sailing Holidays Ltd, to more accurately define what the company did, and they sprang into action with eleven Jaguar 27 yachts.

    Sailing Holidays Ltd is the largest British owned and operated flotilla sailing holiday company. They have been in operation for 40 years. They now have 178 yachts in Greece, all of which are run on flotilla sailing holidays around the Greek islands. Sailing Holidays Ltd remains the only non-corporate flotilla specialist in the United Kingdom.

    Barrie has become ‘Mr Flotilla’ with several books to his name as well, and countless articles aimed at improving sailing skills as well receiving the New Zealand Society Lifetime Achievement Award 2014 for his outstanding contribution to the New Zealand Community in the United Kingdom.

    We are likely to be in for a fascinating evening; Barrie is joined in his talk by his wife Heidi and two colleagues from the business.

    A – Lamb Shanks in a Tomato, Bean & Herb sauce with roasted new potatoes
    B – Skate Wing with Caper & Lemon Butter

    Peter Cardy was born in Gosport. After half a century away he now lives there once again, overlooking the mouth of Portsmouth harbour. No-one in his family had any maritime connections, but he was fascinated by the sea from childhood. He grew up wanting to be a ferryboat hand, an lifetime ambition he achieved at the age of 18. Since then he says everything has been a bonus.

    He went sailing for the first time at the age of nine, and describes it as 75% pure terror, 25% pure joy, just as it has been ever since. He sailed in the 1962 Tall Ships Race (‘wet, cold and scary’) and went as Bosun’s mate on the schooner Sir Winston Churchill in her first season.

    He worked ashore for four decades as CEO in a string of organisations (‘I never had a proper job’) but was unable to leave the sea. Eventually it reclaimed him and he moved from Macmillan, a major cancer charity, to head up the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. He retired from running the Tall Ships Races in 2013.

    ‘I’ve worked with many boards both as a CEO and as a trustee or board member. Most have been a great source of advice and wisdom, though a few have been a nightmare. Even now I haven’t worked out the rules.

    In recent years I’ve become very interested in the relationship between board and CEO, which can go terribly wrong. This tends to dominate my agony column in Third Sector.

    I have not made a success of retirement so I now do four jobs instead of one. I still enjoy helping people to develop, so I take on mentoring and coaching assignments.’

    As a failed retiree he runs Gosport’s marine business network, writes a cold-hearted agony column, sails on the Jubilee Sailing Trust’s square-riggers, advises the Royal Yachting Association and does other maritime things. His memory is full of the strange and wonderful things that happen at sea.

    He has an oblique view of life but is sure of one thing. Since this is the only world of which we can be certain, we should work to leave it a better place than we found it.

    Menu:

    A: Cajun salmon on a bed of farfalle sun blushed tomato and spinach in a cream reduction
    B: Pork tenerdloin, chorizo, mushroom and oregano penne pasta

    David was brought up on sailing, his parents were already world travellers, but he and Helen set out on an intrepid voyage to Brazil and back in 1996 & 1997. Their passage took them out via the Canaries and the Cape Verdes to Brazil. Then along the Brazil coast northwards, as well as trips into the Brazilian heartlands. They returned via the Caribbean and the Azores, making landfall in Ireland. All this is a small boat, just 30ft, but well prepared and organised.

    They saw and did lots over the two years and made new friends. Definitely a talk worth seeing, especially as it is by two of our own members. Lovely photos and artwork from their design studio will make this a memorable presentation, and somewhere music is involved, but that will be a surprise on the evening!

    Menu:

    A – Slow braised shin of beef on a bed or herbed rice with a cream, brandy & mushroom sauce

    Although Club member Phil Levermore has owned ‘Scandal’, his Scanmar 345 for 16 years, he spent the previous quarter century as a determined SOPB (sailor of other people’s boats). His life as a SOPB had an inauspicious start, sinking a hired Walker Tideway dinghy in Hyde Park’s Serpentine lake, aged 11. But something in the soggy experience must have given him the sailing bug as, over the next 25 years, Phil borrowed, hired and blagged dinghies and yachts in the UK, France and Spain.

    Lessons were learnt, sometimes in the classroom, mostly on the water, and occasionally the hard way, but life-long memories were created. Phil will share some of his stories from his days as a SOPB and will reflect on the upsides and downsides with this way of getting on the water.

    Duncan Wells is an RYA instructor, Principal of Westview Sailing School and features writer for Yachting Monthly, Sailing Today and SAIL magazine. He produces the Westview Sailing, RYA shore-based Day Skipper and Yachtmaster video tutorials which RYA students find invaluable as a study aid to their courses. Duncan has been on the water one way or another throughout his life, from skulling and coxing eights at school, to racing Three-Quarter Tonners in the Channel Islands, to Dorothy Lee, his beloved Hallberg Rassy 352.

    By definition couples sailing alone have to do everything for themselves. They leave the berth, set the sails, helm the boat, trim the sails, navigate, anchor, pick up mooring buoys, enter harbour, moor up and all without the help of any extra crew. So they need to carry out these manoeuvres efficiently and effectively, with as little physical effort as possible. Duncan is here to tell us how…

    As a sometime sailor Andrew became involved in more serious yachting over thirty six years ago by sponsoring the North Sea Race from his home town of Scarborough to Ijmuiden, Holland. This proved to be the start of a relationship with boats, people and water which has evolved to make the Pindar name synonymous with some of the most notable sailing campaigns of recent years. He has supported many sailors of many nationalities in teams and events from dinghy classes to ocean racing yachts. The names of these athletes include; single handed round the world sailor Emma Sanderson ( Richards ) MBE, the fabulous quadriplegic sailor Hilary Lister, 20126 Olympic Gold Medalist Hannah Mills, ocean racer and environmental campaigner Jo Royle, Volvo Ocean Race winner Mike Sanderson, ocean record holder Brian Thompson, six time world match race tour champion Ian Williams and through a ground breaking deal in American sport the whole US Sailing Team.

    Having sailed round the world no fewer than six times the Pindar name has, for the last six years, been in partnership with global shipping and logistics company GAC trading as GAC Pindar. Today GAC Pindar is proud to deliver the logistics for the Extreme Sailing Series, the Volvo Ocean Race, Oman Sail,  the M32’s series and World Match Racing Tour, the GC32’s and some 20 or more teams from the member nations of World Sailing as well as numerous individual boat moves for private individuals.
    GAC Pindar continue to sponsor Ian Williams in the World March Racing Tour and Hilary Lister in her latest hair brained schemes, whilst wearing a separate hat Pindar have been instrumental in the formation of the Portuguese entry in the Extreme Sailing Series in @016 and run a thriving charter and sail training business with its two Volvo 60 yachts in Abu Dhabi.

    This month in the depths of Autumn we are giving chef a bit of free reign on the theme of PIES. There’ll be:

    A. Chicken, oyster mushroom, and tarragon served with a creamy tarragon sauce
    B. Selection of fresh fish in a cream and dill reduction

Combining a mix of yarns and solid information Tom will take an irreverent look at the changes many of us have seen from the early 1970s when he found Barbados after 42 days at sea with no chart at all – just a lat/long position, a sextant and his grandfather’s pocket watch – to his current chart plotters that sometimes manage to lead him astray.

    6:30 pmWaywood, Chadlington, OX7 3LT

    Our summer social season kicks off in style with a BBQ kindly hosted by Barnaby. Hopefully the good weather will continue – but as well as a stunning setting we have a couple of small marquees to cope with showers and if the weather is full-on rain we will use a combination of Waywood’s showroom and one of the marquees.  So no excuses!
     Your dedicated committee will be doing all the cooking  and we have decided to keep things simple – so all you have to do is tell us that you’re coming and whether you want the vegetarian option.

    7 for 7.30The Chequers, Chipping Norton


    Erskine Childers, author of The Riddle of the Sands, made a real-boat voyage in 1897 through the Frisian Islands and saw German warships in the Kiel Canal.
    He always claimed his classic yarn was not a novel but a warning about the threat of invasion from the Kaiser’s Germany.
    Is that the case? As we commemorate 100 years since the First World War, Dick Durham’s talk ‘A Voyage Between Empires’ examines the fact and the fiction.

    7 for 7.30Wychwood Golf Club

    Max Liberson is an RYA Yachtmaster with a passion for adventure, who started his sea career in 1976 on an old wooden trawler. In 2010 Max and a few friends sailed the ferro-cement schooner Gloria, that he had bought to serve as a house boat for the princely sum of £1500, across the Atlantic. She was not in very good condition and a lot of people doubted he would make it out of the Thames estuary let alone to the Caribbean.  After enjoying the exquisite Leeward Islands and stone-broke with a dead engine, he sailed her back to Essex. This is the story of the boat they laughed at.

    7 for 7.30Wychwood Golf Club

    Norway is an amazing country but expensive for us in the UK to visit. Hugh has had a long association with the country through fast jet test flying, sailing and this year, 2017, a cruise in winter to the top of Norway in search of the Northern Lights. The cruise was a revelation; even on big ships some surprises are in store in terms of sailing! In between following the cruise, more or less the full length of Norway and back, we will delve into the other aspects of Hugh’s association with this fascinating land. Hopefully something for everyone on this one!
