A Closed session will be held from 18:00 hrs and followed by an Open session from 19:30 hrs.

As an island with a huge maritime community, it was felt that a Marine Club was necessary where colleagues and friends of the maritime community could relax, have a drink, fine dine, share experiences and network.

The Cyprus Marine Club is governed by a Board of Governors and we are delighted to advise that Capt. Eberhard Koch, Chairman, CEO & Partner of the OL Shipping Group will be taking over the Presidency of the Cyprus Marine Club during the AGM from its Founder Mr. Michael G. Ioannides.

H. E. Minister of Transport, Communications & Works, Marios Demetriades has confirmed that he shall address at the Club during its Open Session. Mr. George Xiradakis, President of the Propeller Club, Piraeus will also give an address. Over 100 members and guests have confirmed participation and we shall be welcoming Dr. Konstantinos Rokkos, Regional President of the International Propeller Club for South Europe and Middle East but also Governor and Chairman of the Maritime Committee of the International Propeller Club of the Port of Piraeus at our event.

Incidentally, those of you who are thinking June 8 rings a bell, you are right. It is the day of the UK elections which may, or may not, give you another reason to head to London.
