Zoom Cyfarfod Mawrth/ March Meeting, 2021

Cynhaliwyd darlith Mawrth ar y cyd â Chymdeithas Hanes Talacharn a chafwyd cynulleidfa o 111 cartref! Disgrifiodd Heather James rai o longddrylliadau Bae Caerfyrddin, y rhan fwyaf wedi'u chwythu oddi ar eu cwrs gan gorwyntoedd. Pan ofynnwyd i Heather, sy'n gyn-forwraig ei hun, pa mor feddal oedd y tywod yn y bae, adroddodd ei phrofiad brawychus o'i chwch yn taro'r tywod caled wrth gael ei chwythu gan y gwyntoedd cryf!

 

The March talk was in combination with Laugharne's History Society and attended by an astonishing 111 households! Heather James described some of the wrecks on the sands of the Carmarthen Bar, most of them blown far off course in gale conditions. Asked if the sands provided a soft landing, as a former sailor herself she explained with feeling the terror of being bounced on the hard sands by each gust of gale-force winds!
