Winter Talk – The French Trip to Nantes
November 12, 2015 @ 20:00 - 23:00
Our opening talk for 2015 is being presented by John Mac Aree. A novice in the world of cruising, he was bitten by the bug last year, and this is his tale of a journey in a Malö 36 to Nantes in the summer. The talk will focus on the outbound trip, covering pre-trip planning, costs, weather, traffic separation zones, night passage, and AIS, as well as the navigation route to the Scilly Islaes and France, including stop-overs. The trip was made with four people on board.
Full details of the trip, from start to finish, will be a good template for any sailor contemplating such a passage.
