With the spotlight on the Bahamas Maritime Authority – which will lead the investigation into the cause of last week’s fire on the Bahamian-registered Carnival Triumph cruise ship – we discuss the work of the Authority with Dudley Martinborough, a BMA board member. Martinborough, who is also the coordinator of the Bahamas Maritime Cadet Corp Program, talks about the many opportunities for young Bahamians looking for careers in the maritime industry, and introduces us to two Bahamians who’ve been traveling the world onboard various ships, Kristie Charlton, 3rd Mate, and Kivarlo Smith, Boatswain.
We also discuss recent comments from Chief Justice Sir Michael Barnett, who says it’s time for The Bahamas to move away from the Privy Council as the final court of appeal, and that the country should soon expect to have to address the same-sex marriage issue.
And 70s Music Week begins!
