Dunkirk Little Ships plus Wartime Leisure Sailing
Commodore of St Mawes Sailing Club, Nigel is a lifelong sailor. He spent 35 years in the boatbuilding industry before becoming a freelance marine writer and photographer in 2010. He will explore the story of how 700 small privately-owned vessels from along the length of the south coast helped to save 338,226 British and French soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk between 27 May and 4 June in 1940. He will also show us how sailing for pleasure still continued during WW2.
