Solent Branch

 

 

The Solent Branch of the RIN is located in one of the key navigational hubs in the UK.

At sea, Southampton is still the home of the Cunard Fleet and many other famous ships. Portsmouth's links with the Royal Navy, dating back to the time of Nelson, are as strong as ever. The RYA and the RNLI have their headquarters in the region, as do many maritime technology companies. As a yachting centre the Solent is without parallel.

The Solent Branch organises regular talks and welcomes new members.
