As part of London International Shipping Week 2017, Trinity House is hosting a demonstration of its operational and charitable services on board THV Galatea on Wednesday 13 September.
The evening will feature displays and demonstrations of various and diverse elements of Trinity House’s work as a General Lighthouse Authority, including discussions about how we provide almost 600 aids to navigation for the benefit of all mariners as well as a look at the future of aids to navigation and how we manage the issue of GPS vulnerability.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn about Trinity House’s work as the UK’s largest self-funded maritime charity, spending £5m annually on the provision of cadet training schemes, welfare provision for retired mariners and educational programmes teaching safety at sea.
THV Galatea will be moored alongside HMS Belfast in the Pool of London, offering a rare opportunity for visitors to look inside this fascinating ship. THV Galatea is one of Trinity House’s Multi-Function Tenders, designed to carry out marine operations as part of our duty as the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar.
