As January 2014 is fast approaching, we have a favourite Club event taking place during the Boat Show and as many people journey to London during this time, the annual Honorary Port Officer’s Dinner is to be held on Tuesday 7 JANUARY 2014 and it is hoped that many HPOs will be able to attend that evening. Please remember this is a very popular evening so put the date in your diary.
Please note the following couple of amendments to HPO DETAILS:
Jorn Ovesen, East Coast of North Jutland, is approaching 81 and wishes to resign his post. He was appointed as HPO in 2008 and if there are any members who are known to him personally, do get in touch.
Dr Meinhard Kohfahl, Cuxhaven, Germany, has decided to step down after 11 years but his son, Dr Jens Kohfahl has agreed to take over his post.
Ewen Summers has been appointed HPO Chichester and Eastbourne.
Once again, after saying so many times, HPOs are there to assist Club members and if there is a chance that you can call the HPO and meet up socially, it is very nice for them to be recognised. Just to name a few places , ie on the south coast of England, Brittany, Cherbourg, L’Aber Wrac’h, the Channel Islands, Netherlands, Turkey, that members may have visited this year, do please give a thought when you are out sailing or on visiting on holiday.
