Hamburg Reception- Wednesday 30th November
Wednesday 30th November saw the UK P&I Club host it's annual reception in Hamburg. Despite the rain, the event was well attended by the German membership as well as brokers and correspondents - there were even a few representatives from the wider membership. The UK Defence Club were also in attendance.
Looking out onto one of Hamburg's many Christmas markets, the reception gave the membership the opportunity to meet with the German service team in a seasonal setting, as well as being updated on the Club's position ahead of renewal.

Loading grain cargo in the Pacific Northwest
Loading grains in the Pacific Northwest can be a real test of patience. For shipowners not familiar with the Pacific Northwest, where it rains approximately 150 to 180 days per year, with rainfall totals averaging 40 inches per year, it is important to maximise loading during periods of light rain and to prevent vessel delays while avoiding moisture damage to the cargo during periods of moderate to heavy rain.
