Wine & Cheese lecture at Gilles Cater's house Feburary 9

Dick CarterGilles Carter (Captain of Sagacious) will be hosting a free wine and cheese event on Sat Feb 9 at 4pm at 100 Edgehill Road. It will be an open invitation to all ATB skippers and crews.

Dick Carter will be giving a PowerPoint (not too technical) on how yacht design evolved in the 1960s and 70s intertwined with some story-telling of his racing adventures which included two Fastnet wins. He'll also be signing his new book. So far the talk has been well-received by the Royal London YC, and by the NYYC at Newport and at the Storm Trysail club this January.
