Celebrating International Women's Day 2022

Folk Tales Special Episode

We're celebrating International Women's Day 2022, a great opportunity to draw attention to the incredible women in the boatfolk community and beyond. 

As part of this we've recorded a special episode of Folk Tales. Bee Woodland, our Assistant Manager at Portland Marina is joined by a group of wonderful women who share a passion for being on the water and experience working in the marine industry.  These inspiring guests are: 

  • Clare Elliott, Principal of Quality Time Training sea school as well as a commercially endorsed skipper and instructor. 

  • Becky Walford, Port Safety Officer and a freelance sailing instructor and examiner

  • Helen Paull, director of THL Superyachts

  • Sophie Taylor, A Naval Architect

We certainly enjoyed hearing these incredible females share their perspectives and experiences and we hope you do too.  Happy Listening!
