Merry Christmas and a happy new year (Editorial - 10th December 2010)

Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2011 to all our Members and friends from all of us at the UK Club.  As always our best wishes and thoughts are particularly with the crews who keep watch on board ships at sea through this time.

We hope you will have the opportunity for a well-earned holiday at the end of a challenging year. Our offices follow local customs when taking holidays during the Christmas and New Year holiday period but maintain a roster of duty contacts throughout that time.

Duty executives for the various area groups and local offices are listed in the

Emergency & AOH Contacts

page. This information is updated to ensure it is current throughout the holiday period.

In place of Christmas cards the Club is making a donation to maritime charities this year.
