First Wednesday talk: 4th NovemberClive Gray – Escape from Svendborg! Posted on 11th October 2015 by Ray McGinty ‘Haabet’ Join Clive Gray of the Blyth Tall Ship project for an evening of ‘Boys’ Own’ adventure*. The mission? Lead a team of willing volunteers to Svendborg, Denmark. Prepare ‘Haabet’, a 100 year old wooden Baltic Trader, for sea. Transit the Keil Canal then cross the North Sea to Blyth in time to join a flotilla of sail before an audience of 15,000 spectators and VIPs… Simple? Clive will give us the warts-and-all inside story of how it was done – and how it almost didn’t happen! Hot pies and peas from our steward Dave. 7:30 pm start Ray McGinty * girls welcome too!
