I have given two recent presentations to yacht clubs.

On March 19 I spoke at the Conanicut yacht Club in Jamestown, Rhode Island. Jamestown is the island on which I grew up, and first became fascinated with yachts.

Then on March 29 I spoke at the Royal Fowey Yacht Club in Cornwall, U.K.  I first travelled abroad in the summer of 1065 as a keen collegiate dinghy sailor. The first person I met was a former Exeter College, Oxford, sailor named Brian Appleton. We became friends and that friendship has lasted fifty years. So when he asked me to speak at his yacht club in Cornwall, how could I refuse. A good time was had by all, methinks.

If your yacht club is interested in a fascinating and visually stimulating presentation, I would love to oblige. No financial gain is sought- just reimbursement of my expenses.

    Jamestown is the name of the town. the island is named Conanicut after the indian chief Conanicus who along with 2 other Narragansett Indians sold it to the English settlers. I grew up on the island and my sister still lives on the north end. the island boatyards could provide hours of interest to a young man.
