We had a great meeting in Sydney at the Occidental Hotel on 12 Sept when
Captain Matt de Silva gave a fascinating presentation on Bass Strait
shipping. If you get the chance please pop into one of these meetings.
We are combined with the Company of Master Mariners and the Australian
Institute of Navigation, the dinner is invariably good, and the talks
are always interesting. Our next one (where we provide the speaker) is
14 November. Details to follow.
The Split Committee has formed, and by May next year the branch will
have split into two separate branches, ACT/NSW and SA/VIC/TAS. If you
would like to serve on the committee of either branch please give me a
call – we need some enthusiastic committee members to kick start the new
branches. It’s not a huge commitment and it is a worthwhile thing. Call
me to discuss and I’ll let you know all about it.
We are seeking sponsorship. If you know of any companies or
organisations which might be willing to help the branch put on some more
focus events and maritime focused activities I would love to jear from
you. Please get in touch.
