Next CA Winter Warmer talk is MAIB on 12 Feb

Cruising AssociationClifford Mickleburgh warmly invites us all to the Cruising Association Kent Section winter talks at the Dog and Bear pub, Lenham. The next one is on Thursday, 12th February 2015, 8pm. Admission £3.

Nick Hance, an inspector with the Marine Accident Investigation Branch, has been an Inspector for 14 years. He is also a very experienced sailor. Nick has been involved in the MAIB’s investigations of many accidents involving recreational craft.  Nick will tell us about the role of the MAIB and how it fits into the wider marine safety picture, before concentrating on some case studies.

Questions are encouraged both during and after. I’m sure that Nick will brief us on recent accidents. Perhaps Nick will have news on the dredger that was in collision with the 14 yachts on the River Medway.

Theres a special CA menu of home-cooked meals if you want to come earlier to eat first. Best to phone and order by 5pm to ensure prompt service, so let Clifford know if you are thinking of coming and he’ll send you details. Email Clifford (at)
