Australia - WA
The Nautical Institute Western Australia Branch organised a sundowner event on 21st Nov 2019 at the Navy Club in Fremantle. This was well attended by 23 members/guests.
We also had a NI Member from the UK – Dr. Chris Haughton (FNI) and his wife Jane attended. To demonstrate we live in such a small world, Chris was the Principal of the Fleetwood Marine College (Blackpool and The Fylde College) when I (Zubin Bhada) was a student in 1998. (What a small world…)
The evening was a great environment for all (both members and our guests) - we even had Craig Heron (guest) who celebrated passing his Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) Master’s Orals whilst Calvin Tolentino (Guest) studying for his 2nd Mates Orals and Ryan Cobb (member) studying for his Master’s Oral examination in the next few days - who all came along to spend some time and mingle with the crowd.
