Family World Cruising Seminar with Jimmy and Doina Cornell London 23 February

Doina and Jimmy Cornell

Back by popular demand, this seminar was first held by the Cruising Association Suffolk Section in November.


  • A broad spectrum of topics is on the agenda, starting with an overview of today’s global situation covering the effects of climate change, safety, piracy, and favourite destinations. This will be followed by planning a journey, to the Mediterranean, Madeira, Canaries, Caribbean and the return voyage home with illustrated highlights.
  • The post-lunchtime sessions cover main factors that can influence the successful completion of a voyage, eg the choice of boat, equipment, crew, finances and self-sufficiency. Doina Cornell will present a session on sailing as a family.
  • There is also ample time built in for an open forum to discuss individual voyage plans and ask questions.
  • The day is rounded off with Jimmy’s highlights of his own sailing life, covering the period from 1974 – 2017.

An accomplished sailor and successful author, Jimmy Cornell has sailed over 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world including three circumnavigations as well as voyages to Antarctica, Patagonia, Alaska, Greenland, Arctic Canada and Spitsbergen. Thousands of sailors have fulfilled their dream of blue water cruising with the help of Jimmy Cornell’s books.
