OTHER CRUISING SITES
Over the years we have developed
a slide presentation for each of the passages we have made.
These are computerised and therefore easily modified to suit
different audiences. We have enjoyed delivering them to Yacht
Clubs, schools and friends and would be happy to do the same
for you and your special interest group.
We ask no charge for this although we would probably need
accommodation and assistance at and getting to your location.
Presentations in blue will be modified
to your required level of technical complexity. Each topic
usually take 45 minutes with a further 15 minutes for questions.
Special, related subjects can be assembled at your request.
