We can confirm the Annual Dinner and AGM will once again be held at the Lakeside Hotel, Windermere on Thursday 18th and Friday 19th January, following a similar format to last year.
We have again booked the entire hotel’s rooms for the night of Thursday 18th January as our membership numbers continue to grow. Rooms will be charged at £110.00 for single occupancy, £165.00 for double occupancy. Rooms will be limited to two per company initially to give all chance to attend, but, as always, we will try to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend.
Please send your confirmation of attendance and accommodation requirements to the Secretary, Mark Ranson and NOT direct to the hotel.
Should you have any items to be considered for the AGM agenda, please also forward them to the Secretary. We will be circulating more details and a draft agenda in due course.
We are pleased to announce that, at long last, we have secured acceptance for our workboat crewmember apprenticeship in the new ‘Trailblazer’ format. This format attracts a higher level of government funding and will enable you to receive additional funding to train new crews for our industry in the future.
Yvonne Orr, Nick Allen and Mark Ranson met MCA representatives last month to express disquiet at how things were to be taken forward with regard to the acceptance of the <200GT Masters Certificate of Competence (CoC) in German waters.
