BWCA Annual Conference & Trade Show


British Water Cooler Association

08 Mar




The Nottingham Belfry, Nottingham

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.
