Lectures Archive

The W L Wyllie Lecture Series began in June 1999, taking place on the nearest convenient Wednesday to the winter and summer solstices and the autumn and spring equinoxes, covering topics of local interest. (In the first three years we used January because of a crowded calendar before Christmas)

Lectures are now to be held on a Wednesday in October, December, February and March in order to respond to those who have found June and September lectures difficult to attend in the sailing and summer holiday season.

W L Wyllie, the renowned marine artist, who lived in Tower House from 1906 until his death in 1931, was a founder member of Portsmouth Sailing Club in 1920. He also founded the 1st Portsmouth Sea Scouts and was a leading campaigner for the preservation of HMS Victory. We are indebted to the Wyllie family for allowing us to use his name for this series.

Speakers usually give an hour’s illustrated talk; there then follows an opportunity to ask questions while people partake of cheese and wine. We cater for about sixty, a mixture of members and their guests.
