Meeting old and new friends at The Nautical Institute’s Command Seminar

by admin

Trinity House

On all counts, as we have reported last Wednesday and Thursday, The Nautical Institute’s Command Seminar Series 2017 event at the heart of the Square Mile’s most prestigious and historic buildings, the 500 plus years old Trinity House, was more than a timely and successful event.

Timely because the issues covered are not just contributing for furthering safety and security, but also given the HR factor as well as the technological advancements things should be addressed as they stand from the existing evidence AND casualties many of us have experienced.

l to r: former Nautical Institute’s secretary Capt Julian Parker with Capt Nick Nash FNI, Master, Carnival Corp

Successful due to the fact that delegates attending remained there for BOTH days from the beginning to the end and many have been continuously involved in Q&A time greatly contributing in improving our industry and reducing unnecessary and costly risks and above all loss of life and protecting the environment!

Add the unique keynote speech by HRH The Princess Royal covering the entire importance of the Shipping adventure and you can understand the importance of this seminar on command!

l to r: David Patraiko, The Nautical Institute’s director of projects with InterManager’s Capt. Kuba Szymanski

This is a seminar which must be repeated around Planet Ocean’s shipping centres / states such as  Africa, Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, the USA, Russia, Scandinavia, Singapore as same will greatly contribute above all in promoting the image of shipping and encourage youngsters go at sea; the best and most promising profession despite the global recession we live in…  and we will continue to live for the foreseeable future!

We in all aboutshipping.co.uk encourage all to follow shipping related professions as due to economies of scale that are interwoven with the Maritime Affairs can greatly assist and contribute in Planet Ocean’s peoples well-being. This was also part of my discussion with many youngsters at this event.

Interestingly, demand for The Nautical Institute’s latest book, Guidelines for Collecting Maritime Evidence, has been so strong that it has had to be reprinted before its official launch on Thursday the 18th of May!

l to r: Symeon Tsalikoglou – Adriatico Crewing, The Nautical Institute’s president Capt Duke Snider, Capt Nikolaos Chalaris a Master Mariner AFNI, Captain Stefania Kallergi doing her Masters at John Moore’s University, Capt Panagiotis G. Foinikis from Costamare Shipping Services and John Faraclas

Good to see among others many old good friends and meet new ones too.

Pleased that we were a good team of five emanating from Greece and we indeed had a good time exchanging views on the industry and the many issues deriving from this very special international seminar – have counted nearly twenty different nationalities; what a success!

Congratulations to all at The Nautical Institute for staging this event and look forward for many more to come.

Have a nice evening and a nice weekend.
