Alec Macpherson is a longstanding member of the CA and the Solent Section. For more than ten years he has been the chief architect of our annual Gins Farm Meet, and so the Section Secretaries have decided to invite him and Cate to be the Section's Guests of Honour at this year's Pre-Christmas Dinner. 

Alec will also be our after-dinner speaker.  He has had a very wide experience of the sea and cruising, both under sail and under power, and we can confidently expect a fascinating evening, coupled with Alec’s wry Scots humour.
