Tom Cunliffe is returning to the club to share his rollicking tale ‘Ice with Everything – to America with the Norsemen’
“The early 1980s saw me setting off in a 1911 sailing pilot boat, with my wife and four-year-old daughter as part of the crew, to follow the old Viking route from Norway to America. I only partly succeeded and it was to be many years before another chance came my way when a mate offered me a berth to Greenland in a boat that he’d bought for £14,000 on eBay. In this talk I weave the modern-day and ancient expeditions into a rollicking tale you really won’t want to miss.”
Please note the date for our February winter talk, which will be on the third Thursday of the month instead of the usual second.
This talk will be conducted by Zoom and the link will be emailed to members nearer the time.
