'Linguists for Sail' via Zoom


Emma Gledhill, FITI, will relate her experience of the 2020 Medicane storm on her yacht in Greece, how her background as a professional sailor helped her prepare, and the life lessons that can be drawn from it.


Sue Fortescue, Coordinator, ITI Wessex, will describe how she trained to be one of the IT-EN and FR-EN interpreters for the 2012 Paralympics Sailing events held at Portland, Dorset, and how this led to her love of sailing.
