Onshore Edition 116 – Monday 24 April
Glamour conditions open the Land Rover Winter Series with Great Veterans and Ladies Day

Sydney Harbour put on a spectacular day for the opening races of the 2017 Land Rover Winter Series. After a one-hour delay for the Ladies Day competitors, all fleets were off and racing at 12:30pm in a light 5 knot east south-easterly breeze. The light wind created some congestion at the rounding marks, until an increase to 10 knots was welcomed by the fleet on the shortened course.

A Presentation of an Extraordinary Journey by John Vallentine - Sailing Through Russia from the Arctic to the Black Sea

John left Sydney in 2005 on what was meant to be a summer cruise to the New Zealand sub-Antarctic islands. Somehow this turned into an 11 year journey via the Southern Ocean to Patagonia and via Newfoundland to Spitsbergen and Norway to Northern Russia. 

John's journey down to the Volga River from the Arctic to the Black Sea became the subject of a book and won OCC and Cruising Association awards.

The evening will concentrate on the Russian section of his extended journey.
