We are delighted to have John Megoran as our speaker next Tuesday 2nd November-7.30 for 8.00 at Castle Cove Sailing Club.
John will talk to us about Paddle Steamers operating in Weymouth, Swanage and Bournemouth 1946 - 1966". This will include some paddle steamers which people may remember from their youth.

John Megoran was born in Weymouth and grew up watching the last days of Cosens’s paddle steamers in the 1960s. He returned PS Kingswear Castle to service in 1985 and subsequently ran the business on the Medway and Thames as well as sailing as the steamer’s principal captain.


He has written five books including three on paddle steamers. It should be a fascinating talk.
