Sell up and sail authors share boating experiences

Veteran boaters and authors Bill and Laurel Cooper will present this week’s Cruising Association event. Over three decades, the Coopers have cruised 100,000 miles, visited 45 countries and written six books but as East coasters, they do not feel part of the yachting establishment.

Unconcerned with salty tales of storm force 10 and deadly danger (though they have a few) they prefer to talk of extraordinary incidents and characters they have encountered in 32 years of nautical pain and pleasure. Rather than give a lecture, they prefer to share experience with fellow cruising yachties. And what better place to do so than the Cruising Association.

This week’s lecture is on Thursday 27th March starting at 7pm and costs £3 for members, £6 for non-members.
