International Day of the Seafarer – Tuesday 25 June

Happy International Day of the Seafarer!

“Throughout 2019 there is a strong emphasis in the maritime world on the importance and value of women within the professional ranks.

Much of this is being driven by the World Maritime Day theme (Empowering Women in the Maritime Community). It is already clear that this theme has a very strong and far-reaching resonance.

It provides an opportunity to highlight opportunities for women (as well as the contributions they are already making) in a wide range of maritime careers and professions, but the focus will be very firmly on one aspect of that community – seafarers”

We’d love to hear your stories about your favourite seafaring women and their achievements! Send them in via email, share them on our Facebook page or on the Red Book App.
