The Last Cape Horner
Not many will know that the CBYC President, Captain Malcolm Pearson QSM, is the last surviving person to have sailed around Cape Horn on a working sailing ship. Malcolm served for two years on the four masted barque “Pamir” just after WWII. Malcolm coached CBYC’s young sailors for many years and would often say that if you can master an Optimist then you have the knowledge to sail a Windjammer. He would like to share his experiences with our community after sailing on March 1st (around 14:00). The club bar will be open, rum will be available, please join us to hear of experiences and adventures of the great time of sail.
