Three Strand Splicing Class - Thursday 11th October 2018



Come along for an evening and learn to splice three strand rope. You will make nice a lead which you can take away and give to your dog to chew to bits. The evening will start with a short talk about ropes in general, followed by a quick splicing demonstration. We will then split into small groups and everyone will do two splices to make a dog lead with a stainless steel clip on one end. You will also get a goody bag to take away containing another piece of rope to practise with (or for your dog to chew to bits), plus a small knot tying book and anything else we can think of without bankrupting us. All this for a modest £12.00

The evening will start at 18:30 and finish at about 20:00. If you are interested please email:
talks@arthurbeale.co.uk  to get your name on the list.

These classes normally sell out so don't leave it too late.

La Longue Route - Tony Curphey

La Logue Route is a circumnavigation according to the spirit of the great French sailor Bernard Moitessier. It is not a race but it's a pilgrimage, there is no regulation, no constraints, no obligations, no price either ... Just the ultimate reward to have realised a dream. It is a return to the true values, personal human responsibilities of every man and every sailor. The freedom, the serenity of being at sea, alone facing the ocean. Arhur Beale was proud to be able to supply Tony Curphey...
