Key Marine Journalists Network Over Lunch

Sir Robin Knox Johnson was the guest of honour at a press networking lunch hosted by The Marine Advertising Agency conjunction with Dean & Reddyhoff Marinas at Haslar Marina.
The lunch provided an ideal opportunity for leading industry clients of the agency to get together, with editors of key marine titles and journalists such as ourselves.
It also gave Sir Robin the chance to explain why at the age of 74 he is looking forward to a return to racing in the coming year including a plan to sail in the Route de Rhum a single handed trans-Atlantic race from St Malo to Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadeloupe
Over 90 guests were in attendance, which topped the previous years’ totals, creating an informal and relaxed environment in which to make contacts. As the timing of this year’s lunch coincided with high tide,
Raymarine brought along its test boat, Raymariner, for guests to look around.

The sun shone on this year’s BBQ lunch, which was held in a marquee on the marina’s lawn, overlooking the packed pontoons.

The event was held in the enviable setting of Haslar Marina, and home to a range of marine-related businesses including MAA.
MAA covers every aspect of marketing from advertising, PR, communications and media buying to brand development, websites, smart phone apps, html emails and social media.
