Ocean Sailing Forum in Southampton - Learn from the offshore experts

Saturday 12 September 10:00-12:00

Harbour Lights Picturehouse, Ocean Village, Southampton, UK

World Cruising Club's popular Ocean Sailing Forum will take place on 12 September, the first Saturday of the Southampton Boat Show. This two hour panel discussion is a must for anyone considering making a long offshore passage; crossing the Bay of Biscay, the Atlantic or further bluewater cruising. 

During the discussion the panel of experienced cruisers and marine professionals will cover topics like preparing your boat, selecting equipment, sails and sail handling, life onboard, crew management, route and weather. In addition to industry experts, this year's panellists will include Mike and Liz Downing who recently completed a circumnavigation in their Hallberg Rassy 42E, Aurora B. Taking six years to sail 36,000 nautical miles, Mike and Liz have a wealth of experience to contribute.

Also available for advice will be representatives from World Cruising Club's supporters, including Admiral Marine Insurance, Professional Yacht Deliveries, MailaSail and Ocean Safety. The objective is to share their knowledge and experience in a friendly and informative way. Our moderator will keep the discussion moving and audience members are encouraged to participate and to ask questions.

"This forum was great value for money, highly informative and inspiring!" Jonathan Howard, 2014


It only costs £15 per person to benefit from all of this advice, and the price includes a ticket for the Southampton Boat Show. After the Forum, participants can visit the boat show and look at the equipment and boats mentioned during the discussion.
