NW England and N Wales Branch
Master mariners in Liverpool were at the forefront of establishing
The Nautical Institute. Discussions took place from 1967 until 1971
about the formation of a professional institute. On 14th October
1971 The North West Branch held its first meeting with a talk by Mr.
Richard Goss on the subject of "The Economic Future of Shipping"
which was the first ever branch meeting of any Nautical Institute
branch. The Branch is proud that it has continued to provide an
annual series of talks ever since. [More information on the history of
The Nautical Institute can be found in "A Nautical Odyssey " by MJ
Plumridge FNI and published by the Institute]
