Alasdair Flint of Arthur Beale’s has reminded me that there’s an Arctic forum at the church opposite the historic West End chandler’s at 1845 the 3rd February – as I write that is still tomorrow, just about…

Arthur Beale has been supplying several yachts that are about to head to the Arctic, and the forum will be a rare opportunity to fire questions at two skippers who ventured as far as Spitsbergen last year.

Alasdair says they will do a short presentation describing their voyages with a few slides and will then throw it open to the floor for the audience to ask questions. Everyone is welcome – the audience don’t have to be experts, but should be interested in sailing north or adventure in general.

Arthur Beales have hired the church in order to fit everyone in – a large crowd is expected – but there are still spaces left. If anyone would like to attend they should email Admission is free… and the shop itself is at 194 Shaftesbury Ave, London WC2H 8JP.

There will be special discounts on thermal clothing available in the shop – so it might be worth arriving early to take advantage of the offers!
