Following a meeting earlier this year with the WWF International, based in Gland, Switzerland, William Winram was asked to host a dinner presentation held at the prestigious Gstaad Yacht Club, probably the only land-locked yacht club in the world !

The guests of the evening were all ears, and most of them, though avid sailors, had no idea about the true side of sharks and were mesmerized by William’s personal accounts of his encounters with sharks. Evidently, his stunning photography and videos along that of Fred Buyle made for a complete picture.

William’s presentation to eighty-something people was followed by a long Q&A period which had trouble ending, as so many questions continued to pour on.

THE WATERMEN PROJET would like to thank Alexandra Dauphin at the WWF International as well as Cindy Schönrich at GYC for a perfect evening in this enchanting Alpine venue.
