Lecture by Deputy Harbour Master

Ray Blair, Deputy Harbour Master for the Port of Southampton gave an excellent lecture yesterday evening detailing the infrastructure of the port and  presented some staggering statistics of how much cargo and people pass through the port every year. 

Over 40 members of NCI Calshot attended the briefing bolstered  by watch keepers from NCI Lee on Solent and an HM Coastguard  delegation from the new National Maritime Operations Centre (NMOC).
