Sat 1st Feb – The Commodore from Troon.
Trinity Bowling Club, Lomond Road, Edinburgh, EH5 3JS 7 for 7.30pm
Carolyn Voisey has had a varied relationship with the sea: – sailor, deliverer of boats, retired marine surveyor and volunteer standby engineer with the RNLI. She has been on approximately 200 shouts.
She is currently the Commodore of Troon Cruising Club, which like FCYC, provides affordable sailing for all. Between 1976 and 1978, before Carolyn joined the club, it’s existence was threatened by the building of Troon Marina. The issue reached the Houses of Parliament before a solution was found and Troon Crusing Club was saved.
Carolyn, a lively raconteur, will talk to us about some or all of the above topics. There will be an opportunity for questions after.
