A bit about this event
The General Meeting
Will be held on Thursday 31 October in the Council Chambers, commencing at 10.30am.
The guest speaker will be Bruce Shying, who will speak on Seafaring Yarns: Women and The Sea.
Morning tea will be served at 10am in the museum.
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.
