Discover Northern Delights at The Maritime Museum

From 19 January

In a follow up to her sell out talk about her round the world adventures, join Ellen Winser at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth on January 28, as she recounts the story of the proving trials for her yacht Ardevora of Roseland.

The talk, entitled Northern Delights, will tell the story of Ellen's Baltic cruise in 1990 which saw Ellen and husband Tom visit Leningrad, Tallinn and Riga during the final days of the Soviet Union.


And then in 1991 their second trip took them up the east coast of Britain to Orkney, the Faroe Islands, Iceland and back, as Ellen will reveal in this fascinating lecture.

Ellen, the former chairman of the Maritime Museum, says: "Our first trip in 1990 was around the Baltic when the Soviet Union still existed and we were one of the earliest yachts to visit Soviet cities. The Berlin wall had come down the year before and huge changes were in the air."

Tickets for the lecture, entitled Northern Delights, at 6.30pm on Wednesday, January 28, are available from the Maritime Museum in Falmouth at £19.50 to include a two-course supper or £9.50 for lecture only. Doors and bar open from 6pm. To book your seats please call 01326 214546.
