    AGM

    7:00 pmWychwood Golf club

    As well as the formal AGM business our January meeting this year will give us a chance to celebrate our first 5 years.  On the entertainment side, Hugh is putting together a film collating many of the highlights of the last 5 years and we also have a show of the very best of the classic Mike Peyton sailing cartoons.  There will be finger food provided together with a complimentary drink – and the bar will be open for those needing further refreshment.

    Dave Selby is a passionate but useless sailor who’s been fumbling around the east coast for years in Marlin, his 18-ft Sailfish, without dying once. In 2016 the PBO columnist set his horizons further afield, heading off on Marlin’s Mission to sail 340 miles – up the Thames to London and on to Southampton – to exhibit his boat at The Southampton Boat Show. The aim was to demonstrate that cost is no barrier to getting afloat, that in this day and age sailing has never been more affordable. Another impetus of Marlin’s Mission was to raise money for charity. In 2012 Dave was struck down by a rare viral condition called Guillain-Barre Syndrome. In Dave’s case it means that the messages stop getting through to his legs every four weeks or so; then he spends three days in hospital where antibodies from the blood of 800 donors are pumped into him to restore his legs. So far Dave has raised over £9000 for the charity (gaincharity.org.uk) that funds research into this rare illness and provides support for those with it. Dave has also launched his first sailing book, The Impractical Boat Owner, a light-hearted commentary on “the yachting condition,” charting his meteoric rise from total novice to complete incompetent. “Everything I haven’t learned is in there,” says Dave proudly. Dave will be telling the tale of his adventures and signing copies of his book.

    Penny Tranter joined the Met Office in 1983 and in 1992 joined the team at the BBC Weather Centre, making her first television appearance on 7 November of that year. She appeared regularly on BBC News 24, BBC Radio 4, Radio Five Live and BBC World, and for some years she was a regular weather presenter on BBC One. Penny left the BBC Weather Centre in January 2008 and now works as the Meteorology Training Manager at the Met Office in Exeter.

    Penny has sailed since she was a teenager and has worked as a sailing instructor in New York State, and has crossed the Channel in a Force 9. So she’s well able to tell us about forecasting weather for sailing – including support for the 2012 Olympics.

    Cathy attributes her love of the sea to her mother, who was a pursar on the SS Oronsay, and her passion for sailing to her father, who took part in Olympic yachting trials off the coast of Suffolk. She learned to sail at Pin Mill, the hamlet on the river Orwell made famous by Arthur Ransome (and by the Butt and Oyster pub), and was part of the renowned Wayfarer racing fleet at Waldringfield Sailing Club for several years. She has twice sailed in America’s Cup yachts, once in Southern Cross in Australia, and most recently, on board NZL41 in Auckland Harbour.

    Cathy is a member of the Yachting Journalists’ Association, and writes on a range of subjects, specialising in  maritime heroes. She is a long-standing member of Toastmasters International, has won numerous speech contests and regularly coaches clients in presentation skills. Her series of presentations on maritime heroes, given around the country and aboard cruise ships, look at the private person behind the name and the significance of their actions to our world today.
