Cruising Group Winter Talks

Our winter talks series is now complete, with visits from weather, sail making, boat building and marine safety experts.

This season, we have had a varied and quite interactive programme. As well as talks from experts in a range of topics of interest, we had a visit from the Largs Lifeboat and some of the local RNLI volunteer crew. This gave us great insight into crew training and boat mantenance as well some background to recent call outs.
