Nick Rice of Quay Boat Sales has been appointed as the first Jersey agent for Brooms. Nick tells me that he is very pleased with the arrangement made when Mark Garner visited the Island in April.
Together with Broom's Sales & Commercial Manager, Greg Houlston, Nick exhibited the new 435 demonstrator at the Jersey Boat Show, which attracted an estimated 38,000 visitors over the early May holiday weekend. This was a very welcome appearance of a Broom after a long gap since Paul Pardon came to our first show in 2008. Hopefully this initiative will result in an increase in BOC members in the region.

As members will be aware, sadly Martin Broom died in October 2013. It is the committee's wish that we should pay tribute to the contribution he made to the development of Broom Boats and the establishment and growth of the Broom Owners Club. David Broad, the co-founder and first Chairman of the Club, has very generously donated an antique silver cup that will be known as "The Martin Broom Memorial Trophy". This will be awarded annually to a member; the first occasion being at the AGM in 2015.
