26 January, 19:30 - 21:00 : Friday Evening Talk
'Life and Leadership on the world's most demanding yacht race'
by Brendan Hall
The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is the ultimate long distance challenge - a 35,000-mile circumnavigation of the globe, contested by amateur crews in identical racing yachts - and the winning team is the one that keeps their focus the longest.
The 2010 winning crew was led by 28-year-old Brendan Hall. Although he was the youngest and least experienced skipper in the race, the win was no accident - it was the culmination of years of training, skilled navigation and a leadership style way beyond his years.
Structured around the most exciting points of the race, Brendan's presentation will be a mix of sailing action and rich leadership insight, combined with video footage and images that bring it vividly to life.
Talk starts 7.30pm. Entrance £3 per person on the door. Followed by food provided by Trisha Smith (sign up in the clubhouse).
