As most members are already aware, a private room has been booked in Grieg’s Grill & Restaurant for the XYOA Fitting Out Dinner, to be held on Saturday 5 March 2016. We now have an interesting guest speaker to add to your enjoyment of the evening.
Last year, Peter and Christene Tanner took delivery of their new XC-42 in Denmark and then participated in ARC Baltic.
The ARC Baltic web site describes the Rally as – “Cruising over six weeks, ARC Baltic takes you on a 1,800nm voyage of discovery through Europe’s “east sea”, combining days of social cruising with exploring the Baltic’s fascinating culture and history ashore. The rally format has been adapted to the Baltic and the individual rally legs are short, one to two days, with the focus to experience the cultural history of the region and enjoy the stunning beauty of the Swedish and Finnish archipelagos.”
Peter will tell us whether the actuality matched the publicity!
