Cruising Division Presentation
'The Henrys' Circumnavigation on Sweet Chariot'
Club Members David and Jill Henry will recount the highlights of their extraordinary voyages on Sweet Chariot.
"There were lots of huge grins and a few happy tears as Sweet Chariot re-entered Sydney Heads on Sunday 15 November 2015, having left through these same portals in April 2006. Grey, grizzly weather didn’t dampen our spirits as we sailed up the Harbour accompanied by friends in their boats to the sound of Ladysmith Black Mambazo singing ‘Swing Low, Sweet Chariot’. SC was resplendent in her finery, flying the flags of the 47 countries we entered along the way. The finality of our voyage on Sweet Chariot hit home…it had been an adventure of almost 10 years. We had covered 38,000 n.miles, spending almost seven of those 10 years exploring the length and breadth of the marvelous Mediterranean."
Pictured above are just a few of their destinations: Atakoy Marina, Istanbul, Turkey; Antigua in the Caribbean; San Blas Islands Panama; the Corinth Canal, Greece.
Time: 6pm for 6.20pm start
Cost: There is no cost to attend the presentation, but please RSVP to assist with the setting up. Why not stay for dinner afterwards and continue the discussion with other cruising enthusiasts.
