Group members share a common desire to navigate efficiently and safely on-board small craft. The group organises regular talks on areas of interest. It has representation on committees of the MCA, Trinity House, Irish Lights and the Northern Lighthouse Board and is recognised by the European Harbour Masters Association and maintains close links with the DfT, RYA and Cruising Association.
