Marcus Demuth gave his first lecture in the UK on Saturday evening, here at our store in Valley, Anglesey.
It was a presentation about his attempt to Circumnavigate Tierra del Fuego in 2010. There was a reasonable turnout with folk coming from as far afield as Tregarth, Llanberis, Liverpool & Chicago, illustrating once again what a world class paddling location Anglesey is.
It was an interesting and informative lecture, I genuinely hadn't realised quite what a serious undertaking the expedition at the end of the earth had been and just how much commitment had been required by Marcus and his partner for the trip Biff Wruszek.
I'd like to thank Marcus for giving of his time so generously and inspiring both the audience and myself with his informative and amusing presentation and his quiz with prizes that he supplied himself, he made me feel a bit of a tightwad.
Olly Sanders has agreed to give the next presentation on his exploits in Greenland, a lecture entitled the "Bear Necessities" on Saturday 29th October, same format 18:30 for 19:00 start, which ties in very nicely if you've stayed on for the week following the Storm Gathering apparently there are just 5 places left for this wonderful "late season" gathering.
