A Short History of Yachting in the Mediterranean by Rod & Lucinda Heikell

From the royal yachts of the pharaohs and the Victorians and Americans cruising in their pleasure palaces,  to the explosion of yachting in the 20th century, Rod will take us on a fascinating historical voyage. He has spent more than 40 years sailing and writing about the Mediterranean and in the progress has amassed an extensive collection of papers and books on the history of yachting in this area, and he himself is part of that history. Rod will base his talk on his recent book “The Gift of a Sea”.
