Bruce Shying – Women and The Sea
The guest speaker will be Bruce Shying, presenting Seafaring Yarns: Women and the Sea.

Bruce Shying, sailor, author and raconteur, will “spin us a yarn” about women who went to sea in the early days of sail, Patron Saints, stowaways and the world sailing records that women are still setting today.

The talk will also explore how sailors brought their language ashore and explain how we use it in our everyday life today.
