Talk of Wells - Paul Heiney

21 Jan 2019
Each autumn/winter we hold a series of fascinating talks in aid of a local charity. This year's Talk of Wells is in aid of the National Coastwatch Institution, Wells Lookout. Staffed 365 days of the year by volunteers, the Wells Coastwatch team watch over the tidal Outer Harbour Channel used by all vessels entering the port including twelve inshore fishing boats, local leisure sailors, a busy sailing school, windsurfers, water skiers as well as the busy Outer Harbour used by the windfarm support vessels. They also watch over the beach, the tidal area of Bob Halls Sand and have a distant view of the Rotterdam to Hull east coast shipping lane.

Tonight's talk will be with Paul Heiney, TV Presenter, Author and avid Sailor. Back by popular demand after a wonderfully exciting talk in 2015, this time round Paul will be giving a talk entitled 'The Last Man Across the Atlantic' - no guesses what that's about. Suffice it to say that I know this will be yet another fascinating tale of daring and adventure, of loneliness and starry skies, of personal trials and true grit.

So, join us on specific Mondays through the Autumn and Winter when a special menu of two courses and a glass of wine will be served for £23.50. We will donate £5.00 to the fund for every person eating. Come and enjoy talks from the men and women who will talk with passion about their lives and adventures.
