’Maritime matters’ By Esben Poulsson

’Maritime matters’ By Esben Poulsson

As a sequel to Esben Poulsson’s A life in shipping, Maritime matters covers the period from September 2018 to the present day.

It has been an eventful four years that have included the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Both have had a highly disruptive effect on shipping: the former on the ability of seafarers to enter ports, let alone effect crew change, which inevitably contributed to an interruption of supply chains; and the latter on the movement of goods around the Black Sea, badly affecting the transportation and price of grain, sunflower oil and other goods that Ukraine supplies so much of to the rest of the world.

There are other ongoing matters addressed by Poulsson, ranging from ship emissions to the profile of the shipping industry. With his experience working in both private companies and major international associations – such as the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) – Poulsson is well-placed to make pertinent observations on the state of the maritime industry and its future priorities. The maritime industry does, indeed, matter a great deal and the world needs to recognise it.

Around These Islands in 12 Ports – Exploring maritime Britain and Ireland by Sail By Jonathan Winter

The book follows Anne and Jonathan Winter aboard yacht Nova as they explore twelve landmark ports on the coast of Britain and Ireland. Covering more than 2,500 nautical miles and staying in 69 places over 155 days, they set out to dig deeper into the history and identity of these islands. In the book, you’ll find sailing stories and beautiful coastal images together with an article from each port, written by local historians and authors. Together these paint a hopeful picture of ingenious, resilient people and places that have faced challenges before, and are setting out to reinvent themselves once more.
