Subs 2017

The ordinary membership fee is £24, rising to £28 if paying after 24 / 12: I will send off all the local members` payments before that deadline. That figure of £24 refers to a digital copy of Marine News: if you want a paper version of Marine News, that costs an additional £47. So most members will pay £24: if you choose to receive a paper copy of Marine News, (and a digital copy of BlackJack), your subscription is £71. If you want paper copies of both Marine News and BlackJack, your sub rises to £76.

Southern East Branch Social 2017

The South East Social (quiz) will continue to be held in the Autumn, however there will also be a spring event, which will be on the 8th April at the Clarendon Royal Hotel, Gravesend. This will be more of a sit down event, with 3 speakers to be confirmed in due course. The photographic competition will also move to this event.
