Lunch meeting & Speaker: Captain Stephen Chapman – The Seven Seas & Seabirds.
1st October 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 2:15 pm
Stephen is a mariner from the day he saw the Starcross Ferry on the Exe, at age 6 and learnt seamanship skills as a young teenager on board the TS in Portsmouth Harbour. With an interest in navigation he was a Master Mariner and Fellow of The Nautical Institute with experience in shipping matters from the Atlantic, North and South America, the Pacific and Indian Oceans. After sailing in the last of commercial steam ships and more recently under sail in square-riggers he has salty sea dog stories to tell, in particular about seabirds which have also been a parallel lifetime interest.
