Our March meeting was informative, entertaining and inspirational. SallyAnn set up a raffle in keeping with the "sea" theme of the evening plus one special prize with scarcity value. Yes! A pack of toilet rolls.

Sheila from "Surfers against Sewage" started the evening by speaking about the plastic in our oceans and on our beaches. To learn more, click here for "Southend Beach Care" FB page.

Next Jo Goode spoke about her passion for "Open Water Swimming" and all its benefits. Click here for the "Southend Seals" FB page.

Then Susan Ronaldson told us about rowing with two companions, Jess and Caroline, 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean. The preparation for the rowing race took eighteen months. Each crewmember had to row between 12 and 14 hours daily, in two-hour shifts. They nearly won the race but lost 14 hours when they were becalmed. Susan concluded by saying, "What ever your dream is, please go for it."
