Cancelled: The Operations at the Port of Dover

Following the revised advice issued by the Government on 16 March this event has been cancelled.

Port of Dover is is one of the world's busiest passenger ports, with over 11.7 million passengers, 2.6 million lorries, 2.2 million cars and motorcycles and 80,000 coaches passing through it each year and the challenge of BREXIT. The port is being regenerated with new cargo terminals to the West and a new marina due for completion in the Spring of 2020.

Jim Pascall (VTS Supervisor), Richard Harman-Smith (VTS Officer) and Chris Windsor (Manager of the Dover Harbour Marina) will give us an insight into the operations of this busy port and marina.

A visit is also to be arranged to visit Port Control which has been completely upgraded with the latest technology.
