The RIN Small Craft Group, in conjunction with the RIN Solent Branch, will have a presence at the 2017 Southampton Boat Show.

The RIN Small Craft Group will be organising the stand RIN stand at the 2017 Southampton Boat Show.

The 2017 Southampton Boat Show is taking place from Friday 15th September - Sunday 24th September 2017. The RIN stand at the Show is Stand No. J415 and is situated in the Mayflower Hall.

Do take the time to drop by the RIN stand, where you will be able to discuss with Members of the Institute matters relating to navigation and pick up some useful handouts, including copies of:

Our Members' Magazine - Navigation News,

Fairway - the Small Craft and Marine Traffic & Navigation Groups newsletter,

The SCG Information booklet, including topics of interest to Small Craft navigators, and information about our Solent Branch activities and other RIN events run throughout the UK.

Whilst there, why not take the opportunity to complete our Navigation Questionnaire and have your say in shaping the future development of marine aids to navigation and navigational aids.

Every non-member completing the Navigation Questionnaire will automatically be given 3 months special Associate Membership of the Institute which, for the duration of this special membership period running from 1st October to 31st December 2017, will entitle them to:
1. Join the Small Craft Group,
2. Receive FREE copies of both Navigation News and Fairway in electronic format,
3. Attend Member’s events, many of which are free or have a reduced members’ rate.

In addition to the Questionnaire, on Friday 22nd the Natural Navigator, Tristan Gooley, FRIN, will be joining us on the stand for a book signing and discussion session. See our news item below for further information.

We look forward to meeting all who are visiting the Show, including existing Members and those thinking of joining the Institute.

For RIN Members:
Whilst the SCG are organising the stand, help is needed from Solent Branch and other RIN members to help out with the manning.

The Gates open at 0930 and the Show closes at 1830 each day, except for the final Sunday, when it closes at 6pm to enable stand break-down to commence.

Once again we are seeking RIN volunteers to help man the stand at the Southampton Boat Show. Please consult your diaries and help support us at the Show. If you are able to do two days, it is a great help for the hand-over, if these can be consecutive days.

Each day over the ten day period we are looking for three volunteers per day, which will allow for a couple of hours off duty for refreshments and a look around the show. Those manning the stand have an Exhibitor Pass, so that they do not have to pay for entry.

If RIN Members are able to assist, please email John Cairns letting him know what days you are available.

Further details about the stand manning arrangements will be sent out to all those who volunteer, closer to the time of the Show.
