CA Events at the Show

  • Cruising the Eastern Mediterranean: A talk by CA member Keith Pettican

Friday 12 January 12:00-12:30, Legends Theatre

Keith has spent the last 12 summers cruising the Eastern Mediterranean gaining a great deal of experience. His talk will include brief looks at the 3 main cruising areas, Greece, Turkey and Croatia, including several world heritage sites easily accessible from the water. His talk will also look at comparative costs in the 3 countries and how they differ from the UK and how cruising and boat handling differs from northern European waters and a quick look at the way things are done.
