East Antrim Boat Club in Larne is ready to launch its new series of events ashore next month.
Taking place each Wednesday in November, the Mid-Week Sessions will feature a mix of topics, speakers, performers and presenters, all of whom will be linked together under a nautical banner.
Each event at the Curran Point club starts at 7:30pm, with the first on Wednesday 7 November hosting Robin Gray, international race officer and RYA race management co-ordinator for Northern Ireland.
Robin will talk his experiences on the management team of the Volvo Ocean Race, lifting the curtain to give a glimpse of all that occurred — good and bad — behind the scenes.
Future guests include writer, storyteller and coach Jane Talbot (14 November); shipwreck scholar Dr David Hume (21 November); and TV producer Brian Black, who will discuss his experiences filming in the Arctic (28 November).
Whether you’re a competitive sailor, cruiser, potterer or simply passionate about the maritime world, you are sure to find something of interest.
