Guest Speaker

Mervyn Wheatley

Guest speaker Mervyn Wheatley was rescued by one of the world’s largest cruise liners, Queen Mary 2, earlier this year, creating headlines around the world.

Hurricane-force winds badly damaged the 73 year old’s beloved boat of 19 years, Tamarind, during his 5th OSTAR race; a gruelling single-handed, transatlantic challenge. His nail-biting story of bravery and perseverance, coupled with the heart-wrenching decision to scuttle Tamarind, is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!


Your Hosts

Fastnet Marketing, Stephens Scown and PKF Francis Clark will be available to discuss Risk Management in the marine sector
