The seminar was as usual well attended with participants interested in the recent changes to BIMCO forms, the dry cargo market and the life of a sea pilot.

The event was followed by the traditional branch gathering that provided members and student with a pleasant networking opportunity.

We look forward to the next occasion to get together at the branch AGM, scheduled for Thursday 6th October 2016, 1800hrs at Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers in Leadenhall Market.

It is your branch - please come along and support the committee.
