The Cruising Committee hosted a Solo information evening on Tuesday 13 October at the CYCA with author, Kevin Burke providing insight into his book about the great yacht.
It was a great informative evening with 40 odd members braving elements.
The evening started with a viewing of the 1962 to Sydney Hobart Race, the last in which Solo completed in and won on handicap.
This was followed by a wonderful presentation from Kevin Burke on his book Man of Iron Ship of Steel followed by Rob McAuley's Voyage to the tip of the earth
All in all a wonderful evening enjoyed by all – John Keelty
