The theme for this year’s Day of the Seafarer is ‘At Sea For All’ in recognition of the indispensable role that seafarers play in today’s modern world.
From policing our oceans and protecting world trade, to supplying food and resources vital to modern day living, so much shipping activity is conducted out of sight. Whether on the high seas or behind secure port confines closer to home, the work of our global seafaring community is often taken for granted.
The Day of the Seafarer, and celebrations like it, are crucial in promoting the enormous value seafarers play in everyone’s lives today. Unlike some industries of years gone by, shipping is as important today as it was then.
To show our support for Day of the Seafarer and our seafarers around the world who Dryad supports 24 hours a day, we have decided to share with you our very own seafaring heritage in a fun way.
Prior to joining Dryad Maritime, many of our team served in the Royal Navy with a combined service of over 500 years of maritime operations experience. Whilst some may have served a higher percentage of this than others, we thought we would share with you some pictures of the team in their naval days.
