Med Section Seminar - 2020

Offering a wealth of information on everything from preparing your boat for Med cruising to regulations for Turkey and Greece, technical topics and cruising information for Italy, Turkey, Greece, the Adriatic and the Western Med, the annual Med Seminar has something for everyone planning to cruise these iconic waters.

Once again, we have decided to run this event over two days on Saturday/Sunday 14th/15th March.

Each day will have a different theme, but there is something here for everyone. It will be a great opportunity to tap into the knowledge and experience of Med members .....  and to make new friends and meet people who have similar sailing plans.
