BWCA Annual Conference & Trade Show

January 29, 2018

Thursday 8th March 2018 Nottingham Belfry; Nottingham, UK

Solo Atlantic Rower Debra Searle is to be the keynote speaker at the UK annual event for the water cooler industry.  The event’s theme is The Journey - taken from Ms Searle’s book of the same name describing her trans-Atlantic rowing feat.

Debra first hit the news headlines when she set out to row across the Atlantic with her husband.  Unfortunately he had to be rescued so Debra, a novice rower, continued alone and rowed 3000 miles from Tenerife to Barbados. It should have taken them six weeks but, to achieve her goal, Debra ended up spending 3½ months alone at sea, encountering 30' waves, sharks, and force 8 squalls in her 23-foot plywood boat.   The BWCA is excited and looking forward to hearing Debra’s amazing story.

All are welcome to attend this event which includes a trade show with a wide range of industry manufacturers and suppliers.   For more information and to book visit: 

Members of the BWCA, visitors and guests will also be raising funds for the BWCA chosen charity Just a Drop  At the conference, delegates will learn about how funds raised in 2017 have benefited villages in Zambia and future plans.
