Event Details

After over 30 years sailing the seven seas and having seen pretty much all the world has to offer, Stokey chose to put down his roots in Ventnor in the Isle of Wight which is a pretty big endorsement for the town! From here he plans routes for trans-Atlantic sailors and teaches courses in navigation and ocean sailing and shares his love of the heavens with locals through his popular Solar Walk & ‘Wonders of the Universe’ courses.

The Solar walk is laid out on a 1,000-yard scale, where 1 inch represents 100,000 miles. The meeting point is Bonchurch Pottery, the start of the walk will be from a scaled model of the Sun and finish at Pluto close to the Seapot café along the revetment. The distance is 1,019 paces, the equivalent of 3,666,000,000 miles! Each planet passed along the way Stokey you will explain some fun and interesting facts and figures about each planet and our own solar system.
