The next Glenua lecture, in aid of the RNLI, is to be held on Thursday 5 March (20.00) at the Poolbeg Yacht & Boat Club, Ringsend, Dublin.
Entry contribution of €5 in aid of the RNLI. I would appreciate your help in publicising the lecture in Afloat.
The subject of the lecture is: “A Circumnavigation of Spitsbergen”
The speaker is Photographer and Adventure sailor Adrian van der Lee.
During the summer of 2019, Adrian joins a Norwegian expedition on board the 70ft yacht Valiente to circumnavigate the spectacular 1,500km coast of Spitsbergen - the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, deep in the Arctic Ocean. But there’s a problem: the ice charts show drift-ice blanketing the north and east of the archipelago, blocking their passage - so far this year circumnavigation has been impossible.
Glenua invite you to join Adrian as he presents his illustrated story with stunning photos of local wildlife and landscapes from this fascinating and remote region.
