The Nautical Institute has welcomed Captain Trevor Bailey MNM FNI as its new President. He takes over the presidency from Captain André LeGoubin MNM MA FNI.  

The election took place at the Institute’s recent AGM held in Manila, Philippines.

As President, Captain Bailey will be representing the interests of the members of The Nautical Institute, a non-governmental organization with consultative status at the IMO.

As a seagoing and serving Master, Captain Bailey is perfectly placed to highlight the challenges of leadership and command in a contemporary maritime environment and to share his experiences in working with multinational, multi-disciplinary crews. As the needs of the industry evolve and change, he will have a key perspective of the skills required for the next generation.

Captain Bailey said: “It is an honor to be elected President of The Nautical Institute. As a long-time member, I have always appreciated the benefits of membership in terms of career development and the way the Institute has promoted safety and the fostering of young talent. I am looking forward to sharing my experience with Maritime’s future leaders so we can continue to develop our vibrant industry.”

John Lloyd FNI, CEO of The Nautical Institute, said: “On behalf of our members and the wider maritime community, I would like to thank Captain LeGoubin for his passion and commitment over the past two years. I would also like to extend a heartfelt welcome to Captain Bailey with whom I am looking forward to working during the coming months.”
