Don’t miss Speed@Seawork

This is a unique opportunity for all those involved in fast vessels operating at high speed for security interventions and Search and Rescue (SAR). The international two-day event gathers together an exceptional range of demonstration boats and a matchless selection of expert speakers. It also offers rare opportunities to network with leaders in this field.

Speed@Seawork is aimed at facilitating growth and development for the design, build and operation of these specialist vessels.  As operating demands increase, new solutions for propulsion, navigation, communications and care of the crew will be needed.

Sea Trials day takes place on Monday June 10. Delegates will start the Sea Trials day afloat with a networking welcome breakfast, sponsored by OSI Maritime Systems, and an opening presentation from Alistair Hughes, Team Leader within UK MoD.

Cowes Yacht Haven on the Isle of Wight will provide the base for the sea trials. This purpose-built, state-of-the-art venue will also host the conference lunch and presentations throughout the day. The Haven’s marina offers quick access for the delegates heading out into the challenging waters of The Solent to trial a range of fast boats, interceptors and RIBs from all over the world. Over 15 vessels have registered for the trials so far.

The first day will finish with networking drinks and canapes, sponsored by Ocean Safety, before delegates head to the Red Jet terminal for return travel by fast ferry to Southampton

On Tuesday 11 June delegates will attend the Speed@Seawork conference at the Seawork exhibition, held at Southampton’s Mayflower Park on the Southampton water front. The half-day format sees key industry presentations interspersed with valuable networking and the opportunity to visit Seawork exhibitors and vessels.

Over the two days delegates can hear leading experts discuss a range of topics from High Speed night-time navigation to UK procurement programmes and the latest on export regulations

A limited number of delegate places are still available. For booking information visit here
