Breakfast Meetings

The meetings are short but often include interesting speakers on all kinds of subjects.

Andy Thompson and his wife Alice

A good example was when Andy Thompson who is in charge of the Pilot Boats at Ramsgate Harbour came along to our breakfast meeting on 28th October 2016 to give us a fantastic talk! Not only did we hear about all sorts of things that happen at sea that we had no knowledge of, but some pretty life threatening situations he had experienced as well.

Andy then moved on to the funnier side of his job which had many members crying with laughter over the passenger he once had on board who was given a carrier bag in case he was sick, but claimed it wasn't needed as he was from Birmingham!!! Oh dear, his confidence was very short-lived. We will never be able to look at Tesco carrier bags in quite the same way again!!!

And the thought of him being tossed from the Pilot boat onto the other boat, followed shortly afterwards by his toolbox will never be forgotten.

If you are interested and would like to come to a meeting, contact us (see Contact Details).
