Speaker's Night with Roberto Sani

speakers night sept 22

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 7PM, CLUBHOUSE, DINING ROOM

The Clipper Round the World Race is one of the biggest challenges of the natural world, an endurance test like no other, and is the brainchild of Sir Robyn Knox-Johnston, the first person to sail solo around the world non-stop. 

“You will never conquer or master the ocean but you can endure it. Mother Nature is an unforgiving mistress, always with one last trick up her sleeve for when you least expect it.” Sir Robyn Knox-Johnston.

A record-breaking 40,000 nautical mile race around the world aboard a 68 foot racing yacht, Squadron member Roberto Sani circumnavigated the globe, bringing with him his spirit for adventure, a passport full of visas, a bag full of clothes, and advice from books and articles from favoured adventurers like Joshua Slocum and Sir Robyn Knox-Johnston.

Join us on Saturday, September 22nd  for Roberto’s fascinating and entertaining talk about the race, the experience, and saying yes to adventure.
