[edit] Information

For centuries, a life at sea was very much a man's world. Urban myth suggests that superstitions arose, such as that having a woman on board could bring bad luck to the ship. However, over the years things have slowly changed and there are now many opportunities. Among the women that we meet who made a career on the waves are: Anna Fraser who's just started as a sea cadet in Glasgow; Melanie MacAulay who's a 3rd officer on the MV Isle of Lewis; Eilidh Smith who's planning to take her captain's exams after 11 years at sea; Captain Barbara Campbell, who after 37 years at sea is one of the most experienced female captains in the UK; Mary MacDonald who was a nurse on the cruise ships in the 60s; and Isabelle Law who at 15 works part-time as part on a ferry crew.
