Save the date! We are still thinking of a snappy title for this talk which will include Kim Strugess talking about his successful sail around Britain in 50 day sails followed by Nicholas Gray talking about less successful "Last Voyages" which will include his thoughts on Donald Crowhurst's disastrous voyage, the story of which will be released as a Big Screen Film on the following day.

Modern ropes such as Dyneema and Technora are many times stronger than steel but they are weakened by up to 70% if they are tied in a knot so they are always best spliced. This class will show you how to make a Dyneema strop or a soft shackle to take away.
Entry £12.50 (High load eyes will be charged at cost if you want to incorporate it into your strop). Please secure your place by emailing email@example.com
