Seminars & Events

The UK Club regularly organises both technical presentations its membership such as the Athens forum on Life at Sea.  The Club is able to call upon the world’s most expert and influential speakers to address our Members on topical and relevant issues.

Sometimes these presentations and events address the needs of specialist groups within the membership.  In the United States an annual Bodily Injury Team Seminar is held by Thomas Miller Americas Inc. bringing personal injury claims specialists together from the Club’s American Members, and those from further afield.  Such events take place in all the regions where the Club is represented.

One of the most important activities of the Club is advancing the interests of its Members as an industry.  Its recognised expertise in legal liability and technical risk management issues leads to frequent participation in governmental and industry meetings and debates.  UK Club executives regularly take part in the activities of forums such as the IMO, Intertanko, EU, the International Group of P&I clubs and

UK Club executives are frequently in demand as speakers for industry conferences on a wide range of issues.  UK Club speakers have presented papers on piracy, overweight containers, handling and preparing dangerous cargoes, pollution and stowaways, as well as giving general presentations on P&I as an insurance class.

Social events are regularly hosted by the Club across all its regions ensuring communication and understanding between staff, Members and other industry partners such as insurance brokers, lawyers, government and local agencies.

Club participation in all these various events and seminars is regularly published in the About the Club section of this website under Club News.

A Royal Welcome

On Thursday 3rd November 2016, Her Royal Highness Princess Anne, President of Mission to Seafarers Singapore (MTSS) visited Singapore’s Jurong Port for MTSS reception on board the tall ship - The Royal Albatross.

The reception was to celebrate the work of The Mission to Seafarers' Singapore (MTSS), which is the largest seafaring welfare charity in Singapore.  The Mission to Seafarers was established in 1924, to serve the needs of the world’s 1.5 million seafarers and supports seafarers in trouble or distress.

In recognition of their work, the UK Club and Thomas Miller have a long-standing commitment to support the work and initiatives of the Mission to Seafarers. As platinum sponsor of the event, the UK Club was delighted to be able to continue our support of MTSS and to help raise funds to sustain it for the future. 

Last year volunteers drawn from the shipping and marine insurance community in Singapore rowed two old fashioned pilot gigs (made and shipped from Cornwall) round Singapore and raised S$1,000,000 in cash and equivalents. During the reception on board the Royal Albatross, a second Mission Row Around Singapore Island (Mission RASI) was announced and Thomas Miller P&I Chairman and Chief Executive Hugo Wynn-Williams presented Mission RASI with the Thomas Miller Challenge Trophy – a replica of the wooden clinker built 1830 pilot gig Bonnet – as a prize for the winning gig in all future competitions.
