Ian Walker Talk
Ian Walker’s talk last Thursday was terrific.
We were taken from Ian’s starting in sailing to his role as winning skipper on the Volvo Round the World Race. Ian did not come through what is now the elite style training schemes but just turned up and got out on the water.
We heard about the highs and the lows of distance racing with some stunning video and photos.
The evening was arranged by John Simms; next year John will be cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. To support this effort click here: https://www.justgiving.com/John-Simms1/
