> History

With Mark Leggett in the chair, Pete Camper as District Commissioner and Barry Unger as Operations Manager, Adventures Offshore continued into the next season with the Tall Ships Races taking the boats as far east as they have ever been, to the Russian port of St Petersburg.

In 2007, Tracy Wiseman had joined the team in the office at Tolken and Mark ultimately handed over to Adrian Randall, who served as chairman until the 2011 AGM when Patrick Jones took over. Patrick had joined the board of trustees the previous year and, as someone who had not served as afterguard but had had an involvement in other charities, brought significant experience and an more independent view to the table. Also in 2010, Barry Unger assumed the role of District Commissioner in addition to his existing Operations Manager role.

The start of a new decade, and the boats once again headed for the Baltic in the summer, which has proven to be a popular cruising ground for afterguard and crew alike. The following year saw the boats spend a few weeks cruising the spectacular Norwegian fjords before joining the Tall Ships Race series.

Adventures Offshore continues to go from strength to strength as we head towards our 50th birthday in 2014, with new volunteers joining the established team and helping to move the organisation forward.
