Warning over huge shortfall in young people entering UK maritime industry • New report by Seafarers UK shows the vast majority of young people never consider a career in maritime industry • Research shows lack of interest may be based on careers advice at school with only 2% saying they were ever given any information about maritime jobs • The UK maritime industry directly contributes at least £11 billion a year to the economy, while supporting over 113,000 jobs • A recent global industry report forecasts a serious future shortage in the supply of future seafarers • Seafarers UK is warning of a huge shortfall, unless more is done to guide young people into the industry, which could have a worrying impact on the UK industry and economy in years to come A lack of information and guidance for young people on possible careers in the maritime industry will create a shortfall in years to come that could have a worrying impact on the industry and the UK economy. That’s according to the charity Seafarers UK that has released a report today ahead of Seafarers Awareness Week (20-26 June) which shows that the majority of young people have little or no knowledge of careers in the maritime industry. Only 2% say they have been given careers advice about the maritime industry, compared to professional services (18%), science and engineering (21%), health sector (19%), retail (14%), construction (8%), uniformed public services such as police, fire service, paramedics (13%), media (18%), catering (8%). When asked from the above list of careers, which they thought offered good prospects, only 1 in 20 picked the maritime industry. It’s perhaps not surprising that more than 70% have never considered a career at sea as one in three have never even been onboard a ship. The UK maritime industry directly contributes at least £11 billion a year to the economy, while supporting over 113,000 jobs.* Approximately 70,000 people in the UK currently work at sea+, including in the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy, and Fishing Fleets. According to a recent worldwide report there is a current global shortfall of about 16,500 officers in the maritime industry, but a need for an additional 147,500 officers by 2025 to service the world merchant fleet~. Seafarers UK believes these numbers are indicative of many new job opportunities in the industry and are calling for more guidance and education on possible career options.

I'm back down at Titanic Slipways off the Queen's Road in Belfast dockland to see the Great Light Maritime Exhibit that was opened yesterday. ( 8th March 2018 ) The Great Light is a marvellous new addition to the maritime history already showcased at Titanic. ( I'm sorry that the blinds were mostly pulled down around the glasses when I filmed. I will return when they are up and film again. I will make a further videos showing the educational information boards that circle round the base of the Great light Lantern, the displayed lens and the light at night. ) The Great Light is one of the largest optics of its kind ever built in the world, and is around 130 years old. Weighing 10 tonnes and measuring 7 metres tall, the optic is a unique maritime heritage object with significance to Belfast's economic, maritime and industrial past. It is totally irreplaceable and is an exceptionally rare maritime artefact. It produced one of the strongest lighthouse beams ever to shine - a truly GREAT LIGHT.' 'Northern Lights: New Titanic Walkway and 'Great Light' open in Belfast A new Northern Light is shining as Belfast's Titanic Quarter unveils two new maritime heritage and tourist attractions this week. From this morning, March 9, visitors can walk a new 500m Titanic Walkway on Victoria Wharf. Connecting the Titanic Slipways to HMS Caroline and the Thompson Dock, it is dotted with educational panels on the area's shipping heritage. Also up and running is the "exceptionally rare" Great Light, one of the largest optics of its kind ever built in the world. “At around 130 years old, weighing 10 tonnes and standing seven meters tall, the Great Light is a unique heritage object," said Kerrie Sweeney, Chief Executive of Titanic Foundation, a charity preserving Belfast’s maritime and industrial heritage. The Great Light's huge Fresnel Hyper-Radial lenses produces "one of the strongest lighthouse beams ever to shine", the Titanic Foundation says. Dating from 1887, the optic shone from Tory Island and Mew Island lighthouses, until it was replaced in the latter by a solar-powered LED in 2014. Titanic Foundation worked together with the Commissioners of Irish Lights to secure its future locally, and it is now housed in an interpretive structure. Belfast’s 185-acre Titanic Quarter is one of Europe’s largest urban-waterfront regeneration projects. Encompassing the original space where RMS Titanic was designed and built, today it includes the iconic Titanic Belfast attraction, Gateway Offices, the restored HMS Caroline, and a new, 120-bed Titanic Hotel Belfast. Three further hotels are planned for the Quarter in the coming years. The launch event for the Walkway and Great Light was selected to mark The European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 in Northern Ireland. Belfast Harbour Commissioners providing the site on which the Great Light is located and Titanic Quarter provided assistance in developing the Titanic Walkway. The projects are funded by Tourism NI, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Belfast City Council and Ulster Garden Villages and the Commissioners of Irish Lights.

Sorry this took a while to upload, tried 5 times but the internet at the hotel here in Winnipeg is not the best...... I got invited to go on a PC Charity ride, all money made goes to the Presidents Choice kids charity. It was short notice and we managed to get 13 Bikes, went for a great 95klm ride, lots of mud holes, look offs, windmills and had a BBQ. Hope you like the video, press the Thumbs up and leave me a comment ! Instagram - maritimeratv Song: Sturgill Simpson - Brace for Impact (Live a Little)
