On 6th October 2008 , Jeremy Clark was elected as Chairman of the Solent Protection Society Council. Jeremy joined the Council in 2005 and has been active in monitoring activity in the Hamble River area on behalf of the Society. For the past year he has been a member of the Strategy and Marketing Committee. Now retired from executive roles in motor engineering, contract hire and coach travel in the Thames Valley, Jeremy held a Royal Warrant of Appointment as an automobile engineer to Her Majesty the Queen for 25 years. Jeremy lives in a riverside house on the Hamble at Bursledon and has sailed in the Solent for 40 years. He is Treasurer of the River Hamble Mooring Holders Association; fund raising chairman of the Swanwick, Bursledon and Warsash Regatta, and Secretary and a Trustee of a Southampton charity providing low cost counselling in the City. Jeremy takes over the Chairmanship at a time when there are many important issues for the Society’s attention and the SPS Council believe that Jeremy’s business experience will be very valuable in this responsible position.
