“Is This The Last British Tall Ship to sail round the Horn?”

SATURDAY MARCH 22ND AT 3.00PM

lORD nELSON

Bridget Halpin, one of our Elders, has just returned from a 3 month adventure when she sailed in the Tall Ship ‘Lord Nelson’ from New Zealand to Antarctica and round Cape Horn. She  gave a detailed talk illustrated with photographs and video clips about her recent voyage and experiences. The audience were enthralled  by her vivid descriptions of life on board the Lord Nelson, the comradeship on board, the food that was consumed (especially the cakes which celebrated special occasions), the avoidance of icebergs and the climbing of the rigging to  furl the sails.

This was a wonderful and exciting experience for Bridget and the whole crew and the packed audience were privileged to have heard about it from such an enthusiastic crew member.
