InterManager is gathering ship and shore staff together to take part in this year’s fund-raising 24 Peaks Challenge, organised by Seafarers UK.
Secretary General Captain Kuba Szymanski has already put together four teams which include staff from ship manager Member Bernhard Schulte and Associate Members SOFTImpact, Shipserve and ALLMode, but he is keen to encourage more InterManager supporters to take part.
“This will be my sixth time of taking part and I love doing it. It’s a great opportunity to challenge yourself and to build team spirit,” Kuba revealed in the latest edition of InterManager’s electronic newsletter Dispatch.
Taking part in the 24 Peaks Challenge can help bridge the gap between ship and shore staff he says. “This is a great event. Having teams which combine seafarers and shore staff can help build team spirit and bridge the gap between sea and shore.”
Organised by Seafarers-UK, the 24 Peaks Challenge involves walking up 24 high UK peaks in just 24 hours and takes place on the weekend of July 12-13. To take part your team will need to comprise 5/6 physically fit walkers plus at least one support crew and should raise a minimum donation of £4,000 per team.

Lloyd’s Register has issued a new short film entitled Safe Boat Transfers to help provide marine surveyors with comprehensive instructions on how to safely transfer between two vessels at sea. Working over water and, in particular, boat transfers, during which surveyors switch from a transfer vessel to the boat they are surveying, is a very high-risk activity. The film, originally developed for Lloyd’s Register employees, aims to raise awareness about the associated risks and hazards, and to provide instruction for every stage of the transfer. It is hoped that Safe Boat Transfers will help to significantly reduce the accidents associated with boat transfers. The DVD can be ordered from the Lloyd’s Register webstore: http://www.webstore.lr.org.
