Jimmy and Doina Cornell held another successful day’s seminar on transatlantic voyage planning at the Cruising Association headquarters in Limehouse London on Saturday 12 March.
The sessions combined theory with practical advice and a unique chance to visit Jimmy’s Aventura, docked in Limehouse fresh from her successful transit of the Northwest Passage in the summer of 2015.
Many of the seminar participants were still in the planning stages of their dream voyages, hoping to set off in the next few years, but several crews were already sailing or just ready to go.
A informative day was finished off with a welcome taste of Caribbean sunshine thanks to delicious rum punches supplied by Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc which are sponsoring the Barbados 50 rally, part of the 50th year independence celebrations of the Caribbean island.
All that remains now is to sail across the Atlantic to sample some more!
