Our Next Meeting
10th December 2018
Phil and Rosy's very interesting website
with much more information and photographs
may be found here:- Blue Hound
In January 2017 Phil Marks and his wife Rosy made a two-handed Atlantic crossing to the Caribbean in ‘Blue Hound’, a 27 ton schooner.
What led up to it? They didn’t join the ARC were not NARCs – it was a totally independent effort.
How did they prepare? How did they deal with a fishing net round the rudder? How did they arrange their watches? What were the highs and lows? What would they do differently next time?
As well as being extremely interesting there are sure to be some nuggets of information in this talk for anyone who is contemplating an Atlantic crossing.
