From humble origins, Emma
From humble origins, Emma Hamilton rose to national and international fame as a model, performer and interpreter of neo-classical fashion. Within the public mind, however, she typically continues to occupy a passive and supporting role, and is often remembered simply as the mistress of Britain’s greatest naval hero, Admiral Lord Nelson. This landmark exhibition recovers Emma from myth and misrepresentation, and reveals her to be an active and influential historical actor in her own right: one of the greatest female lives of her era.
Born into poverty in 1765, Emma’s talent and beauty brought her fame while still in her teens as muse to the great portrait artist George Romney. In her twenties she achieved still greater artistic prominence in Naples, the epicentre of the fashionable Grand Tour. Here, as the confidante of Queen Maria Carolina, she also came to wield considerable political power. Emma embarked on a passionate affair with Admiral Lord Nelson, but risked her security and social status in the process. Her fortunes never recovered from the tragedy of his death at Trafalgar and – following a period in debtor’s prison – she died in self-imposed exile in Calais in 1815.
The exhibition carries visitors through the arc of this remarkable story, revealing Emma’s driving ambition and her brilliance as a performer, and placing in sharp relief the social conventions ranged against her. In an age when people tended to remain fixed in the social categories in which they began their lives, she crossed boundaries of all kinds, broke through barriers and ultimately paid a heavy price.
Emma’s story will be told through over 200 objects from public and private lenders around a core from the Museum’s own collections. Emma’s compelling story will be explored through exceptional fine art; antiquities that inspired Emma’s famous ‘attitudes’; costumes that show her impact on contemporary fashions; prints and caricatures that carried her image to a mass audience; her personal letters and those of Nelson and William Hamilton; and finally the uniform coat that Nelson wore at Trafalgar, retained by Emma until destitution forced her to part with it.
The painting is a study of Emma (as Emma Hart) playing Circe, around 1782, by George Romney. Photograph: Tate

Under the title NORTHERN
Under the title NORTHERN LIGHTS the recently-opened Robbe & Berking Yachting Heritage Centre presents its second major exhibition on nearly 900m2; the most spectacular photos from two photographers who for many belong to the absolute stars among the yacht photographers: Nico Krauss and Ulf Sommerwerck. Classic yachts are depicted in very special moments. These are photos with a dreamlike quality and will make every sailor’s heart beat faster.
Flensburg has been a great destination for friends of classic yachts since 1995 But in the past only the customers and invited guests had access to the yacht yard which is situated in Flensburg harbour. Now, yachting aficionados from around the world can visit the “Robbe & Berking Yachting Heritage Centre”. The centre is the dreamchild of Oliver Berking, owner of the local silver makers that date back to 1874 and also founder of the yard, who wanted to create a centre for yachting history in which the working yard itself would play an important part.
“We plan to do three to four exhibitions per year”, said Oliver Berking. And alongside the changing exhibitions he also plans permanent features. “Apart from the many maritime items we will also show classic cars, create a Hall of Fame for the great men and women of yachting history and run a small but special museum shop.”
The exhibitions at the Robbe & Berking Yachting Heritage Centre explore the fascination of life in, around and on the water. Located next to the Robbe & Berking Classic yacht building yard, the Centre emphasises yachting history as a central focus. In addition to each exhibition, the Centre also houses the largest yachting library in the world, plus two galleries, a museum shop and a sizeable museum restaurant with a wonderful view of the historical centre of Flensburg.
The mission of the Yachting Heritage Centre is to preserve the tradition of classic yacht sailing and make the history and beauty of classic yachts accessible to the public. There is a popular 200-seat Italian restaurant on the site.
Due to reorganisation for the upcoming exhibiton NORTHERN LIGHTS,
the YACHTING HERITAGE CENTRE will be closed.

Explore the fascinating lives of the female divers of Jeju in South Korea.
The story of haenyeo, the female divers and their community in South Korea is told from two different perspectives, through life-size photographic portraits taken by Hyung S. Kim and SeaWomen, a video and sound installation by Mikhail Karikis.
Both parts of the exhibition celebrate the unique culture of haenyeo, who for centuries have harvested seafood from the ocean without any diving apparatus. The women dive for up to seven hours a day and range in age from 11 to over 60 years old.
Both artists’ work is an insight into the culture of the Jeju divers, who have contributed to the advancement of women’s status within their community, whilst promoting environmental sustainability with their eco-friendly fishing methods.

The Landscape Photography Of Charlie
The Landscape Photography Of Charlie Waite
Saturday 1st April – Monday 29th May 2017
World-renowned landscape photographer Charlie Waite returns to the Bosham Gallery with his new work, A Moment In Landscape, showcasing his inimitable style with spectacular images created all over the world.
Visiting The Exhibition ( PO18 8LS)
There is a large car park in Bosham, a good pub for lunch is The Anchor Bleu, and we recommend Wendy’s Tea Rooms in the Craft Centre for afternoon tea. For large tea bookings please call Wendy Coleman on 01243 575297.
If you would like to stay overnight The Millstream Hotel on Bosham Lane is wonderful (01243 573234).
Featured image is: Algar, Andalucia | Charlie Waite
Some background to Charlie’s work:
“Seeking a title for an exhibition of landscape photographs is not as straightforward as it may at first seem. The primary consideration is for the title to embrace as best it can what lies behind my impulse to photograph the landscape, and the mental processes that prevail whilst in the midst of making photographs.
It is difficult to define but perhaps the best try would be to describe a very recent photograph made in Andalucia in early 2017. I had known of the location for some years and had always wondered if it would present me with the potential for a photograph or two. On arrival, I found a shallow flooded plain with a large number of tangled dead trees scattered randomly throughout. In the first few seconds, I felt that this entire watery landscape would be gifted to me.
I found it mysterious, sad and surreal yet before the camera was brought out and after a further minute of investigative scanning, I knew that any photograph that may emerge would carry none of the emotional response that I had so quickly experienced. The ingredient of mystery, where a feeling of heaven and earth were meeting in front of me, utterly failed to be conveyed.
At first I felt confused and frustrated but should have remembered well enough that the discrepancy between the dispassionate eye and the often complex and multifaceted human interpretation can amount to a gulf between the two. To my mind, landscape photography is rarely about a simplistic equation of ‘it is beautiful therefore a beautiful image is an inevitability’. I will be seeking as best I can a high degree of parity between my human emotional interpretation and the finished image, hopefully conveying all I knew and felt in that moment of first encounter; all else will be seen as compromise.
There is an overwhelming desire to achieve this objective as an all in one ‘in camera’ production’ with very limited subsequent engineering. Perhaps I am outdated in this approach as there is no doubt that image modification using many types of sophisticated software to manipulate the image to match the artist’s previsualisation should be seen as a continuation of the artistic processes of expression and interpretation, all of which is in pursuit of the same ends as myself. My preference is to own what I saw and experienced in that fleeting moment that took place in its entirety for me; it was completely my moment in the landscape.
My flooded landscape was not letting me down; it was I who was unable to discover the gift that was waiting to present itself to me. I well remember appreciating that windless morning where cloud, water and tree became so beautifully bound together that I felt transported to a place of complete serenity.
Yet there was still something that was paradoxically missing; there was a need to offer a hint of explanation, a small reference point and almost as if my request had been heard, the mildest of a fluttering breeze arrived lending my photograph a small clue in the form of a line of almost indiscernible ripples in the foreground. A hint of the literal had been provided yet in the next 30 seconds a wind of greater force had arisen and the entire scene disintegrated before me to such a state, that had I passed this place three minutes later, I would not have even noticed it.”

Held during the 2017 Singapore
Held during the 2017 Singapore Yacht Show, on 7-8 April 2017 at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove, Singapore, the ABF is staged in association with ICOMIA, the international trade association representing the global recreational marine industry, and serves as a strategic meeting of industry professionals and regional authorities. This select group gather to present and share insights on the issues and challenges in the development and sustainability of the boating industry in Asia.
The programme for this years’ Asia Boating Forum (ABF – 5-6 April) is fast developing, and there’s no shortage of highlights. Here are just two of the key matters to be discussed:
POLICY DEVELOPMENT IN ASIA
This session showcases efforts in external relations from around the region, to assist key players in the private sector play a role in shaping policy development in their respective countries. Key outcomes will include the development of pro-boating policies and harmonisation of cross-border regulations, enabling the promotion of the region as a single cruising destination.
MARINE ENVIRONMENT & CONSERVATION
Coastal settlements dot the Asian seascape, but maritime environmental management has not been high on the national agenda of many countries. Will a growing yachting industry help change that? The aim of the session is higher awareness of marine conservation and a stronger alignment between boating and the environmental agenda.
With an informative programme and compelling speaker line up, attendance at the conference is a must! Mark the dates in your diary now and register your place today.

Edward Heath (1916-2005), ex conservative Member of Parliament and British Prime Minister and owner of several S&S yachts named Morning Cloud, was a Sydney-Hobart winner in 1969 and led the British Admiral’s Cup team in 1971. Sir Robin Knox Johnston is the first man to complete a single handed non-stop circumnavigation of the world in 1969 – winning the Golden Globe. He has been Yachtsman of the Year three times, set up the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and has a long life dedicated to sailing in all kinds of boats.
Mike Golding set the fastest ‘wrong way’ round the world record in 1994 and won the 1996/7 BT Global Challenge. He is one of few yachtsmen to have raced round the world non stop in both directions. He held the solo record for sailing round the world westabout (the most challenging direction for a circumnavigation) between 1994 and 2000 and raced in three Vendée Globes.
Peter Bruce has represented Britain on seven occasions, four times in the British Admiral’s Cup Team, twice in the British teams for the Southern Cross series in Australia and once as the sighted skipper of one of the British Team blind sailing crews. In 1979 he was in the top individual boat in the Admiral’s Cup, twice, in 1977 and 1981 he was in the winning Admiral’s Cup team and, when skippering the blind crew in 1992, he won a gold medal. In 1978, he won the Round the Island Race Gold Roman Bowl and has cruised extensively and has written several books on pilotage including Solent and Wight Hazards.
