After the excitement of announcing its first-ever sponsorship of Cowes Week 2020, sponsoring the trophy for the newly introduced Club Cruiser Class, the Cruising Association (CA), although saddened at the news that this iconic regatta has been cancelled this August, has nonetheless pledged its commitment to supporting the event in 2021.
Following on from the enjoyable and insightful chat between the CA’s President Julian Dussek and Patron Sir Robin Knox-Johnston in our Tuesday-night webinar for CA members, we have great pleasure in sharing this feature-length sailing documentary film, launched last month, and chronicling the extraordinary life, career and record-breaking voyage of this legendary ocean racer and adventurer, the first person to complete a solo non-stop circumnavigation of the globe.
CA President Julian Dussek will wrap up this series of lectures by describing how in 1908 a small group of yachtsmen formed the Cruising Association which now has over 6,300 members from 43 countries. We will see whether the CA has met the expectations of the founding members and discuss its future direction.
