The Leeuwin Current – Cruising Section Topic Night 7.30pm on Thursday 20 June 2013, FSC Stateroom

For June Topic Night there will be a 30 minute DVD presentation “Going With The Flow” that tells the story of the Leeuwin Current and how this narrow band of tropical water has created the unique marine habitats along our coastline – from the Tropical Northwest to the Recherche Archipelago on the Southern Coast.

The DVD will be followed by a presentation by Kim Klaka about currents and tides and how they affect navigation, passage planning and sailing conditions.

The evening will be of particular interest to those who have a passion for marine biology as well as to those who sail well offshore along our coast, through the Kimberley, and when chartering yachts in tidal areas such as northern Europe.
