Well, the presentation on “Could Ancient Romans Sail To Windward” measured up to the publicity, and was well received by the large group (members and non-members) in attendance.
It was a privilege to have Dr Chris with us and even non-sailors such as myself learned
not only about the design and function of ancient sails, but about sailing itself.
Peter Batchelor has put Dr Davey’s entire presentation on our website and it can be viewed by selecting “Articles…. Dr Christopher Davey”.
