I guess that journalists and other practitioners involved in any way in the maritime media world had more than enough with news and important aspects to cover over the last year and they deserved not just a tranquil evening on the Doggets Coat and Badge but even more… BWM, Piracy and Terrorism, the Risky and volatile Dry and Wet markets, the Cyber warfare, the Box trade and Intermodalism and many more  important issues kept all more than busy and this last get together earlier on tonight was more than a great chance and opportunity to meet each other and exchange views, but above all have fun!!!

Following last December’s exceptional winter gathering for the Christmas Party and Awards night exactly seven months ago – 6th of December,  tonight’s event was more than great with members and guests having a great night next to Father Thames with the unique scenery and views from the very well …positioned balcony overlooking the Square Mile and beyond. The Met offered a great …gift with the exceptional weather conditions!

Magnificent views; what a sunset! Picture credits: Anna Menis

The atmosphere was amazing, the sunset in London was really magnificent. Members and guests had the chance to enjoy plenty of tasteful food and drinks. The environment was so cozy and hospitable for everyone…

Coincidentally all had the chance to meet, discuss  and  celebrate  the birthday of veteran shipping professional and Baltic member, who among other’s devoted her life in maritime education and training and good causes, the ever present Inge Mitchell. Happy Birthday Inge and all the very best!

A team of Transaid with Harry Wells and Jade Ashby was also there to remind us the importance of safety and quality of transport.

*The Seahorse Club is a lively networking group; a forum for public relations, marketing, advertising and journalism professionals within the freight transport, shipping and logistics sectors.

The Network was founded in 1963 with the main aim of providing a positive social and professional forum ‘promoting the promoters’ of sea travel. Since that date it has broadened its scope to embrace all other forms of transportation products, systems and services. The common bond is that Seahorse members enjoy the industry and enjoy sharing their experiences with other members.

Whether you represent transport principals or promote an in-house service, the Seahorse Club provides an excellent opportunity to meet others with similar jobs and interests. We hold regular events designed to inform, entertain and create debate, drawing on the experiences of members, special industry  guests and trade journalists; in particular these include The Christmas Party and Journalist  Awards  and the Summer Barbecue.

Thank you so much for a lovely Summer Splash evening and your congratulations on my 90th Birthday on 13. July. Just back from Denmark and family reunion on the island of Moeen where we also celebrated my sister-in-law’s 80th and her daughter’s 50th birthdays. Lovely weather and a great time was had by all.
See you at the next Seahorse Club event, all being well.
Lobe to you all,
