28th UK Club Korean Mountain Climb
The 28th UK Club Korean Mountain Climb took place on Saturday 26th April, 2014 along the Jangsu Ridge of the Yeoninsan Mountain, approximately 2 hours south of Seoul. The Mountain stands at 1068 metres and affords spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
The Club has a significant entry from the leading Korean shipowners and it was nice to see that participation in the annual Mountain Climb increased this year, and that we were also joined by participants from brokers and non-member shipowners. Afterwards, the climbers retreated to a restaurant for a traditional Korean barbecue before a leisurely coach ride back to Seoul.
The Thomas Miller team consisted of Andrew Jones who is the Regional Director for Asia Pacific, Sean Geraghty and DY Kim from the Hong Kong office, James Baker and Gloria Kang from the London office, and Richard Carpenter who continues to attend the Mountain Climb despite his retirement in 2002 in order to maintain the friendships formed during many years of service to the Korean membership. The Thomas Miller team was ably supported by Hyopsung, the Club's representatives in Korea.

The 30th UK Club Korean Mountain Climb took place on Saturday 16th April, 2016 on the Yumyeong Mountain which is situated about an hour and a half outside of Seoul. The mountain was originally known as Mayusan Mountain until 1973, when the Empor Alpine reached the mountain during a hike across the nation. The Yumyeong Mountain was chosen for the 30th Anniversary as it was also the site of the first UK Club Mountain Climb in 1986.
