Editorial Handover! John Clandillon-Baker


Members will be pleased to learn that the future of the magazine is assured, since Mike Robarts has agreed to take over from me as editor. Many of you have remarked upon the improved, professional formatting and layout of the last issue that was produced by Mike’s wife, Kerry.

I had planned to formalise the handover at the conference but an unplanned health scare whilst in France meant that I was unable to attend this year. Fortunately, I am well on the road to a full recovery and since I will still be assisting Mike for the next few issues I am planning to attend next year’s conference in Liverpool so that I can hand over the remnants of my editor’s pencil.

Having been advised by my consultant that a daily glass of good red wine would be beneficial (vive la France!) my recovery has been greatly assisted by a wonderful wine decanter and two delightfully large glasses which Don & John Pearn presented to me on behalf of the UKMPA at the Trattoria Verdi restaurant in London. It therefore gives me great pleasure to offer a toast to the good health of UK pilotage in general and to UKMPA members in particular. Cheers!
