Brian Lennon from Skerries Sailing Club gave a very animated and fascinating presentation to the Cruising Group on Monday night 21st October 2019. His incredible voyage covered sailing his Moody 29 to the Isles of Scilly, the islands history and culture, the many mishaps and adventures on route. It also covered his stop at St. Ives and Padstow in Cornwell as well as in Dale (in Milford Haven in Wales) on his return. Many thanks to Brian.
The presentation consisted of photographs with history culture animations/ drone videos of each harbour visited/photographs of places /famous bars on route/ropes around his propeller etc.He talked his way through it without any text prompts.he listed and showed the group the cruising guide and websites that he used on route.
