The award was announced at the 2014 International Seafarers’ Welfare Awards, aimed at show-casing best practice in seafarers' welfare in the maritime industry.

The award was given in recognition of the Club’s state of the art facilities, as well as the commitment and ethos of the Club’s staff and volunteers as they to work to ensure the welfare of visiting seafarers.

The Flying Angel Club came out on top in a strong and diverse field, with other nominees hailing from Bremerhaven and Duckdalben in Germany, Durban in South Africa, Odessa in the Ukraine and Sriracha in Thailand.

Representatives of the Flying Angel Club were in Geneva to accept the award in front of a crowd 300 strong.

AMSA would like to congratulate the Flying Angel Club for this well-deserved international recognition, and the positive message this sends to all involved in seafarers’ welfare in Australia.
