We'll be hosting an Open Weekend at our London headquarters at CA House, Limehouse Basin on Saturday February 29 and Sunday March 1.
A number of high-profile marine brands have already signed up to exhibit during the two-day event and the author, journalist and broadcaster Tom Cunliffe is confirmed as guest speaker for the Saturday evening.
The FREE to attend day-time events commence at 10:00 and finish at 18:00 on both days and anyone interested is being asked to book in advance for the two-hour time slots throughout the day, for which you can select one or more optional 30-minute talks.
The CA is promising a terrific line up of three expert speakers in each of four x two-hour slots per day, all sharing their specialist cruising knowledge and/or discussing general boating topics. Further details on speakers and subjects will be announced in December and updated on the event page.
Naturally anyone is welcome to book for one or more slots or even two back to back slots if they wish. Information and booking details can be found under the relevant listing
Saturday’s schedule will be rounded off with the option of booking a place for Tom Cunliffe’s talk starting at 19:30, followed by a hot buffet at 20:30. The cost for the evening’s entertainment and supper is £22.50pp.
The CA has also attracted a broad range of top marine brands to sign up to exhibit and staff will be available to talk to visitors about their products and services. Those already confirmed include ASAP Supplies, Dolphin Sails, Gill, ICOM, Imray, British Waterways Limehouse Basin Marina, Navionics, Ocean Safety, Raymarine, and of course the Cruising Association who will be offering any new members signing up on the day, a 10% discount on their first year’s membership fee when paid by Direct Debit.
