Braemar Corporate Golf Day

(0 votes)

In October, Braemar held a corporate golf tournament for the 4th year.  The competition was very keen for the top prizes of closet to the pin, longest drive, and top foursome, the winner of the hole in one was elusive for all but one of their guests.  Afterwards, they celebrated the day and heard more about the work that The Angel Appeal and the Mission to Seafarers does in the UAE.  We really appreciate their continued support of our cause. Look forward to next year's tournament.

Tough Times on a Tug
We recently got a message from the crew of a tug out in the Gulf.  They had little water, no food and not much fuel left for the engines.  This vessel had been trying to find a local port that would allow it to come in, but because the owner of the vessel had abandoned it no ports were willing to accept what would be a financial liability - a vessel unable to pay its way.
Finally, the compassionate port managers at Ras al Khaimah allowed it to come in and tie up.  The port manager contacted us to see if we could help the crew.  Fr Nelson saw them later that day and took emergency provisions.  
Efforts are now being made to find a long term solution - getting these men their pay and getting them home.  It will be very difficult now that the vessel owner has washed his hands of the situation.  It may be that the crew will have to accept that getting home without their salary is the best they can hope for.  More on this story as soon as we have it.  

We need volunteers for our upcoming events:
  • 15 December in Jebel Ali at the Christmas Carols 
  • 18 December in Fujairah at the Fujairah Fun Day
  • 30 January 2016 in Abu Dhabi at the High Tea
  • 6 February 2016 in Dubai at the High Tea

Jebel Ali  Seafarers Centre
Just a reminder to tell all of your crews about the new seafarers centre in Jebel Ali.  it is located behind the GAC building between Gate 7 and 8.  It is a great place for seafarers to go and relax.  They have free wifi, computers, printers, restaurant with great prices and a duty free shop.   The best part - they have a bus that will go to your ship and pick up your crew to visit the seafarers centre.  Or if your company bus is taking them to the seafarers centre just follow the signs.  Make sure that they bring their seamens book with them to be able to be able to shop.
