First Wednesday talk: 4th November
Clive Gray – Escape from Svendborg!


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
