BMSW Conference & AGM 2017

Plymouth-Roscoff 23 March – 24 March 2017


Join The British Marine South West on an Overnight Cruise and Day in Roscoff Marina

This year’s conference and AGM will combine a trip to Roscoff and the opportunity to meet with our colleagues from APPB (Association Des Ports de Plaisance de Bretagne) as well as a tour of the excellent marina in Roscoff.

We have negotiated a group rate for the crossing of £25 per person return and the day in Roscoff will include (continental) breakfast in the marina and lunch at Le Transat restaurant (in the marina). We only have until 22nd February to book the ferry so please read on for full details otherwise you will quite literally miss the boat!

The ferry crossing departs Plymouth at 22.00hrs on Thursday 23 March arriving in Roscoff 08.00 24 March. The ferry returns at 15.00hrs on the 24th arriving in Plymouth at 20.10.
The full conference timetable will be announced nearer to the date but we expect to include a tour of the marina, roundtable sessions hosted by our sponsors and a presentation from APPB.

We have also negotiated early boarding in Plymouth to enable a pre-departure networking event and use of the onboard cinema for a short time on the return journey. Members are welcome to bring guests or partners and we will advise the procedure for the AGM during the event itself.


Bookings must be made directly with Hays Travel Totnes. It is very important that you book and pay BEFORE the deadline of 22 February as the space on board (we have reserved 60 places so please book early) can only be held until then.
