Talk: Crusader with Steve Holter
- Date November 4, 2021
- Time 7:30pm - 9:00pm
- Suitable for Everyone
The tale of Crusader, the jet‐powered boat of 1952, appears to be a simple one about the ambition of John Cobb and Reid Railton, two unassuming but deeply gifted men, to break the water speed record on Loch Ness only for their efforts to end in tragedy.
In fact the story behind that fateful outcome — Cobb’s death on his first high‐speed run — is a complex web of clever design and inspirational endeavour mixed with personality clashes and errors of judgement.
Author Steve Holter joins us live in the Clubhouse and on livestream to unravel the entire saga of the ill‐fated
Crusader and presents a compelling detective story.
This event will be in person in the Clubhouse and broadcast on BM.tv Livestream
Food and bar will be available in the Members’ Bar from 6pm.
Parking on-site via the Brooklands Road Campbell Gate.
