In the ice
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
