This illustration of The Mary Rose (by Geoff Hunt who was President of the Royal Society of Marine artists) shows the ship as she would have been in 1545 before she sank in battle with the French. As well as sailing for 55 years, (a member of Hardway Sailing Club, and keeping his boat on swinging moorings in Portsmouth), amateur nautical archaeologist and ex scuba diver Edward Sutton has particular interest in Solent wrecks and hulks. He will come to the Club from the Mary Rose Information Group, which was formed to provide speakers on the subject and active in archaeological reconstruction projects involving the Mary Rose.
