    Dick Durham: Confessions of a Cruising Correspondent

    7 for 7:30Cotswold Club

    Dick Durham served on the last working Thames barge before writing for national newspapers and sailing magazines. He joined Yachting Monthly in 1998 as Feature Writer and News Editor and has travelled the globe in search of the best sailing stories. Still a big part of the magazine, his role is now Editor at Large. Author of three sailing titles, he is well known for his powerful and poetic writing style.

    We are delighted to welcome Dick this month to regale us with ‘Confessions of a Cruising Correspondent’ which takes in the East Coast from the Humber to Dover – a collection of characters met, boats sailed, cock-ups extricated from, and history.
